Worklog The "Blair Witch Mod"
Has a computer to look like one ?
It was a cold and rainy november night in 2003 where I
saw my wife walking downstairs, dressed to go out.
And this was the second where I thought that she
should be not only human.
So why not a case with such a body ?
how to make it ? first of all you will need a plaster impression
made with gypsum
pic 1 - a plaster impression of the body you want to form out - the most funny part but really difficult
It´s necessary to follow some instructions very very careful... this plaster impression is the base of your future forms and if you didn´t work fine enough your body will lose the marking details. In fact, its a hard thing to copy piercings (like my wife has one in her belly) and so I left this part completely out of the plastic. You have many ways to get a form like this, its also possible (for a higher detail) that you use latex before you bring the gypsum as a static construction over the body. But remember that latex is very flexible and its hard to find out how to get the best result for a "big area" like a whole plastik from a body. The detail of a normal "medical gypsum" is for our use more than high enough... not necessary to use more materials that will complicate the procedure.
pic 2 - the carbon fleece and carbon plastics in the plaster impression
please be careful - smells horrible and you need air circulation !
pic 3 - 15 mins later ... get it out of the form
pic 4 - yes, it MUST be out of it... and your impression is lost...
pic 5 - result: I am impressed. Not bad for the first time !
pic 6 - now the hard part : clean and proper surface... (about 50 hours...)
pic 7 - colored and YES, I know the belly is missing... didn´t you read all above ?
pic 8 - this is the hardware and the watercooling components for the case
pic 9 - this is a really funny experience with medical plastic used to form teeth
pic 10 - make a round form, mix the thing in 30 secs and put your hand in.
Two minutes later get your hand out and fill it with gypsum...
pic 11 - first handmade hand ;o) wow, I´m impressed again !
pic 12 - the other hand... much better than the first one
pic 13 - one view from there.....
pic 14 - ... and one from here....
pic 15 - and the most important question : Will it fit ? Answer : YES !
pic 16 - thats how it looks in the right position (one week later)
pic 17 - and this hand here too....
pic 18 - only cause its soooo great !
pic 19 - the bwp also needs arms.... *hmmm* Watercooled, of course.
And lighted... of course ;o)
pic 20 - Special construction for the arms ... water in and out
pic 21 - Is it really waterproofed and sealed ?
pic 22 - yes it is ... sealed and ready for build-in
pic 23 - the torso at its place...
pic 24 - first view to the whole BWP
pic 25 - and from another view....
