Make an Octo-Glowie!
Join San Diego Makers Guild at Gaslight Gathering where we will be showing off some steampunk(ish) robots and teaching plastic casting / mold making.
Get started with plastics casting and mold making. Learn to quickly form objects from low cost molds. Mold your own glowing heart, skull, etc… from natural, reusable, low temp thermoplastic; light it up with an LED and coin battery to make a ‘glowie’.
During the workshop on Saturday (3pm Saturday, in the "Garden" Room) we will also teach mold making with Oogoo (a low cost flexible material based on hardware store 100% silicone caulk mixed with half as much corn starch). Perfect for making multiple objects quickly from a single 3D printed or other original. Or you can cast soft objects with Oogoo from a 3D printed mold.
Guild members / makers who would like to help out / exhibit your steampunk stuff, please contact us!
