Lewis Tully's Amazingly Detailed Homemade Ghostbusters Proton Pack

Sci-fi is captivating to many because the ideas and technology presented offer a glimmer into a possible future that we may one day enjoy. Some sci-fi is more realistic than others, but some sci-fi is hilarious and absurd, made solely for the purpose of humor than to push the boundaries of our imagination.  Ghostbusters is one of those sci-fi films that blends humor with the paranormal and exotic technology, but takes place in a modern day setting. The original Ghostbusters was released in 1984 and is considered a part of 1980s pop culture. Ghostbusters fever is again at fervor levels now that the new...

Versimold Used For Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) Enthusiasts

Over the weekend, we received a very interesting email from a gentleman who is an avid HEMA (historical European martial arts) enthusiast.

Versimold Instructions - How Does Versimold Work?

We often get asked how Versimold works or how to use it in a specific application. Simply put, Versimold is a moldable silicone rubber compound that is resembles a cross between a putty and a clay. This means that it's a very easy material to shape, work, carve out, or roll up, but unlike Silly Putty, it doesn't revert back to a natural shape. If you write your name into Versimold using a sculpting dental pick, that shape will remain indefinitely. We've made a quick video to show you how to use Verismold and how it works by creating a...

We Cure Versimold with Boiling Water

We recently had a customer tell us that he was able to cure Versimold simply by using boiling water. Since we've always recommended that people use a direct form of heat (such as a heat gun or oven), it didn't take us long to realize that using boiling water would be a perfectly acceptable way of curing Versimold. Watch our attempt at curing Versimold with boiling water below:
