I'm just starting mine. I have a huge number of ideas. also remember, poly clay can come in handy for items!! And resin.

Have you ever used a patina on your tins as an ager if so does it work relatively well or is more roughing up needed?

Okay thank you :) they are really awesome you do really great work and as a novice prop maker being able to see and use basic labels has made my cospaying a lot easier. I was not happy with my inaccurate labels so these were a blessing :] keep up the awesome work

I love the jet Elvis. You have one of the best ones I've seen here. Right now I have an inhaler sitting on my to do shelf along with some of your labels.. But your jet is inaccurate. I know you are already aware about the liquid (reddish orange colored) [link]
The front should be white and the area around your glue cap should be cut differently. Check the first link. Here's one where someone used cardboard for that part. [link]

Don't want to sound like a douche or anything.

I'm aware that it's NOT an orange liquid but rather pink originally [link](Fallout_2) the front is white, AND there is no glue cap visible. My jet is innacurate in the overall shape of the inhaler and in no other way. it's not flat enough on botom and a few things that are due to being real rather than digital.

The original jet is visually based on an antique inhaler of sorts I have 1 of, to make a pile of them I went with a more moderrn one.

Funny you should mention it, you did come off as a dousche.

Wait. I meant that you used a glue cap. I think..?
But the orange think was based off memory of what I read from one of your replies to someone else.
So sorry. :/

It's made from pvc conduit, epoxy putty. plastic epoxy, a nitrous oxide cannister, and a cut down re-shaped inhaler. made it to look unmistakeale. I have a guy with a 3d printer who will be printing 100% accurate inhaler pieces for me soon i hope. Still plan to use the nitrous piece re-painted though.

This is wonderful!! But I do have a question: did you mod the inhaler or was it originally that short? If you did, how did you go about doing so?

emptysamurai Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011  Professional Artist
Glad you dig my work, it is cut down with a short length of pvc used in the aesthetics.

Hacksaw, measuring, ALOT of sanding some plastic epoxy for glue to hold the piece of pvc pipe I used for the round white bit. epoxy putty for filler, and an empty nitrous or c02 canister for the resevoir. sand the edges of the top of the pvc to round them.

holy hell thats epic! I realy love the show and the props are spot on, no wonder with you working on them =D... wow, just... wow! from one prop artist to another, what works best for you?
I've always find tutorials that seem to take a complicated rout, I my self will try and find a simpler rout...
can you recomend any thing?

Could you be more specific? Research is my biggest thing. mountains of research. HUGE mountains.
Thats the one universal that comes to mind. For weaponry its best to always research the real equivalent and how it's made if needed. For firearms based on a real one (or even easily modded from a real one) find an airsoft if possible.from there it branches. blades erquire schooling, or an anvil, knowledge of elementary metalurgy, etc. for maximum all around effect always watch your details. all of them. relative locations, color, etc. never too accurate. paper props (posters, food boxes, id cards, etc) are easy, fun, and impressive once enough have been compiled from the same source. Hope this helps a bit. I don't use alot of tutorials.

you know that sounds just like how I work, my fiance gets abit upset caus I will have folders taking up a crap ton of space on just one prop, ad I'm ocd about detail =P. I am into airsoft, so if I make a gun prop I'd rather it work as well as look good lol, blades on the other hand, hehe well I've found scrap metal and some paint and polish look ok.

as to be more specific do you recomend any certain material to make props with? resin ,plastic, paper mach'e that kind of thing.

other than that thank you for taking the time to talk to me, hell after I found out you worked on the props in nuka-brake I was txting all my frinds lol, so forgive me for being a bit star struck

I'm a plastic, epoxy, and fiberglass kind of guy. sintra expanded pvc sheet is awesome, rondo (bondo polyesther resin blend/ with hardener for both added) s awesome for backing up material. also allows you to pepakura full suits of armor (google pepakura, then prowl youtube for tutorials if needed.) paper mache is good for a mold blank, but gesso and sand then krylon before molding.

Also, when doing bottles (beer, whiskey, etc) always take the time to find the perfect one. 20 bucks sounds high for a bottle, but when it's 19th century old west, AND perfect, buy it (fallout botles, lol).

google the Rpf, you'll dig it.

I just got a heatgun so I can start working with plastic, and I had a fiberglass/resin kit but I never got around to using it and ended up giving it to my brother.=(

but so far I don't have mutch of a prefrencs so fare I've used
scrap metal, peper mach'e, wood, pvc, stiro, sculpie, and cardbord ( witch I try my damdist to stay away from ), other than all that bace items are always my 1st step finding what looks close to the prop then moding it has always saved me time, but some times I do have to start from scratch=P.

$20 for a bottle! wow lol I'm a grintch when it comes to cash, but it's mostly becaus I get paid good and don't work a lot I get like 4 days off on avrage( I work in a kitchen and I live with my old man to help him out caus he got layed off from his job, but I am looking into a beter job, and he finly got a job so I can get back out on my own yay =P ) but your right when something looks dead on I will always brake down and get it... paid $40 for an accurate skeleton yesterday so I can make some zombies for the yard this year

the rpf? ok lol... most likly I'll turn my fianc'e loos on there so she can check it out and keep me posted lol she is addictied to the internet and I'm lucky to toutch the mouse on her days off lol

Try checking the wiki. morphine is not blue. also, that is the window through the metal shield tinted blue. at a guess, it was to cut down on detail work. mine is made from a modded real syringe.
