I'm sure Mardon needs no intro from me.
In the follow up to a number of different projects, he found he had quite a bit of card left over, so he decided to do a quick tutorial in pictures of how to make a 3d physical rendering of a bucket. This is how he makes his mock ups which are then moulded and cast, etc.
basically it involves making measurements, scaling it up to the desired size, then cutting out the card and fixing it together as shown below. The most intricate bit appears to be filling in the quarters on top with bondo to give the dome.
Now his secrets are out, I guess we'll all be making our own buckets.
Enjoy the pics!
Pretty good stuff, eh. He makes it look so easy!
Thanks for sharing Mardon.
Thanks also to Sergio for hosting.
