Building a Brick Hut from Scratch

Building a Brick Hut from Scratch

Primitive Technology continues to fill the forest with hand-built structures, though this time, his technique results in a more permanent shelter. He starts by making his own bricks from scratch, firing them in the kiln he built, then stacking them, filling the joints with wood ash cement, and topped it off with a roof of handmade clay tiles.

Sculpting an Earth-Eating Monster

We’ve been enjoying North of the Border’s creative sculptures and sassy narration for a while now. Adam’s polymer clay and resin sculpt imagines a giant space monster that has gotten its tentacles around Earth and is ready to gulp us all down like a giant jawbreaker covered with ants.

Tiny Minecraft Ocean Diorama

Tiny Minecraft Ocean Diorama

Artist WUZU Clay built this miniature scene inspired by the blocky world of Minecraft. They made the underwater ocean temple by cutting and sculpting precise squares of polymer clay, layering them, and then submerging the structure in clear resin. The level of detail in the characters and plants is truly impressive.

Polymer Clay Peach’s Castle

Polymer Clay Peach’s Castle

Previously, ClayClaim built a miniature scene based on a level from Super Mario 64. Now the Fimo clay artist is back with another build inspired by the N64 game – Princess Peach’s iconic castle. He achieved the low-poly look by cutting lots of sharp, angular blocks of clay. Those Mario, Yoshi, and Cameraman sculpts are adorable.

How Toilets Are Made by Hand

How Toilets Are Made by Hand

While most of the toilets in the world are made using machines, there are still places where they are made by hand. This video takes us inside one such factory in Pakistan, where workers pour bucketloads of clay into toilet-shaped molds, assemble and smooth the leather-hard clay, glaze it, then fire it in a giant kiln.

Plasticine Clay Cars and Crashes

YouTube channel Handmade features models of cars that were individually hand-built out of Plasticine clay. The artist behind the camera uses a plastic model as his form, then painstakingly traces and cuts out each piece of its body to create impressively accurate miniatures. And then he crash-tests them.

ClayClaim is an expert at sculpting objects and scenes out of Fimo polymer clay. In this video, he shows us how he created an incredibly detailed miniature scene based on the Bomb-Omb Battlefield level of the Nintendo classic Super Mario 64. We love all the tiny enemies, especially King Bob-Omb and Chain Chomp.

Sculpting Darth Maul

While Darth Maul might not have turned out to be the most impressive villain in Star Wars history, he sure looked the part. Watch as artist Dr. Garuda crafts an picture-perfect sculpture of the spiky-headed baddie. He just needs to team up with Boylei Hobby Time to add a light-up version of his double lightsaber.

Making Mini McDonald’s Meals

Making Mini McDonald’s Meals

Miniature model maker HMS2 shows us how to make some ridiculously tiny and accurate replicas of fast food and their packaging from McDonald’s. We love the individual french fries, and how the Coke even has microscopic ice cubes.

Sculpting Godzilla

What starts out as a few styrofoam spheres, aluminum foil, and some hunks of clay serves as the casting form for an incredibly detailed monster sculpture, courtesy of artist Nick Brown of LoreCraft. The finished piece has even got spikes and teeth that glow under black light.

Buttered Side Down tries his hand at sculpting clay, but like most of his videos, things quickly run off the rails, and his clay creations end up rebelling against their maker, and eventually getting the upper hand.

Watch as artist Juliana LePine painstakingly sculpts an incredibly detailed clay sculpture of musician Freddie Mercury in one of his most iconic and victorious poses. We had no idea that sculptors started by building a skeleton before applying the skin and other details.

Watch as sculptor LoreCraft takes a block of white clay, and gradually transforms it into the evil leader of the whitewalkers on Game of Thrones. In addition to the sculpting and painting, he made that sweet armor by hand too. Impressive!

While the majority of 3D printers melt plastic filament, this unique printer uses modeling clay as its medium, resulting in ceramic creations which would be difficult to sculpt by hand. If you already have an FDM 3D printer, you can purchase the extruder only for $399.

Mesmerizing Clay Patterns

Need to relax? We can think of no better way than to strap on a pair of headphones, turn down the lights, hit play, and go full screen with this 15 minute video of hypnotic patterns being created on a potter’s wheel by artist Mikhail Sadovnikov. (Thanks Nagy!)
