PandemicCemetery: The white block is for controlling depth, I made it myself but HWFF dose
sell one for use with there tools. The engraving tool is awesome for
epitaphs and other shallow cuts. Thanks for the question!
Hot Wire Foam Factory: @dEdmontonTV Ventilation is always strongly suggested, but the smoke that
you may encounter while cutting EPS foam is primarily CO2 and water vapor,
which are far less harmful than other common art products like aerosols and
paint thinners. The dust from cutting with saws and sanding EPS foam is
more harmful than the fumes encountered while cutting foam with a hot wire
tool. Always wear a good quality dust mask when saw cutting or sanding EPS
Josh Thompson: i've made some rock bakgrounds for terrariums. The way i get rid of the
straight edges like you have in your cracks is just pick away at the foam
with my fingernails. You ever try that method?
HalloweensFinest: How are ya Pandemic? Quick question again on those tools..i may be getting
the same kit soon, but what is that white shield on the tool you have
there? It's used to control the depth of the cut correct? Also, i have the
foam needed for 2013's tombstones, but can these tools be good for making
cracks and doing epitaphs and stuff? I know this is a lot, i apoligize,
just trying to get all the right info before i go and mess something up. I
paid a lot of money for the foam. Thanks again!
PandemicCemetery: If you want to start getting technical on me.... Reinforced concrete was
invented (1849) by Joseph Monier, who received a patent in 1867. But The
Egyptians used lime and gypsum cement to form concrete blocks hundreds of
years before that. In 1756 the first hydraulic cement was made. Shall I go
on??? Thank you for watching.
gerbilkill: acetone is safer than riding in a car , women use this all the time for
there nails i use it for polishing certain metals . lol im sorry that guy
gave you crap for acetone, haha i just realized styrofoam burning is way
more toxic than acetone lol . later bro nice work btw
dionicia12: Warm and eerie. Very cool. :)
dEdmontonTV: Nice work! A heat gun is a little safer than a blow torch, but you have to
be careful in any case - make sure you do this with some ventilation. The
fumes that come off that foam probably aren't very good for you in any
case. Looking forward to the prgress vids on this project!
robopony: Great video! I can't wait to see the wall after it's all finished and
painted! Totally makes me want to make a sex dungeon in my basement like
this. Seriously, though, do you work out?
PandemicCemetery: Thanks! The block I made myself out of white nylon, but Hot Wire Foam
Factory sells a fixture that does the same thing.
Michael Hooper: Dave, Awesome vid my man. Keep it up when you can
Stacy Medina: show us how you made the block? excellent video--thanks
ladyowned: That is so cool!
PandemicCemetery: @josht25 No but that could definitly work.
DeadThingsYardhaunt: Very cool, gonna look great. One technique I used when making my pillars
was to use spray paint on the lines. The acetone in the paint does the same
KorbielowSki: Dear pa., Thanks for your message and clarification. I was not commenting
on your great artisanship merely your statement re: concrete&1912. . Near
where I live there is a housing development which was built of poor quality
brick, the exterior of all the buildings was covered in CEMENT with astylar
facades and rusticated ground floor quoins; very fashionable in 1840. Looks
like concrete ! . It was thought they might only last for fifty years but
no, the're still standing. . . Cheers from del-boy
KorbielowSki: Dear pa., Yes, do go on; where would there have been concrete walls not
cement, that could get cracked like that in domestic architecture in 1912?
. I can't think of any 1912 era architecture that would be like that, do
you know of any in LA? that there are photos of on Google image? Francois
Coignet House, (not 1912) . . Cheers. from, del-boy.
foreverwingnut: Dave, you're a great host! I'd like to make some Egyptian walls using some
of the same methods I've learned from you. I can't afford the carving
tools, so I'll be using a cheap wood-engraving tool instead. Also, to make
pitted/aged blocks, I've had great luck in the past using aeresol
spraypaints (sparayed on very thinly), which eats away at the foam- it's
less time-consuming than the hot-air gun method, but you looked like you
were enjoying yourself, so to each his own!
BestMagicEver: lets get started on the crack.....that made me lol
KorbielowSki: 0:15 I don't think there were any concrete walls a hundred years ago. .
Concrete was not used as a building material in that way in those days. . .
Cheers. from, del-boy
PandemicCemetery: @dietmtndewcub It's made out of white nylon. My day job is a CNC Machinest,
so I make alot of my own tools and things. But it could also be made out of
wood with a couple holes drilled in it for zip ties to slide thru so you
can attach the hot knife. Or Foam Factory sells a "sled" for this exact
purpose. I think its like 20 or 30 bucks.
FatalHaloMedia: Great instruction man! Thanks for all the detail and for not missing
anything. I'm going to try and do something like this in my son's room
soon. That block you used to kep your depth even on the crack - did that
come with the hot knife and wire kit you bought? What's it made out of so
that the knife doesn't burn it?
Scott N.: What you have done, looks Awesome Can't wait to see more. The white handle
you had on your hot knife, where did you get it and what is it made of? I
could SO use one doing my work.
PandemicCemetery: Your way too serious about halloween wall panels. I mean I'm glad you care
so much but, were talking about Halloween here. I didn't want to sound like
a pickle. I was just stating thay there was concrete block 100 years ago. Yes
it might not br a perfect match to 1912 architecture, but its just for
halloween. I don't think kids will notice.
sonicfreak04: whats the soundtrack? I heard it before from the haunted house I use to
PandemicCemetery: The song is from midnight syndicate. Buy i forgot the name. Sorry
