Homestuck Horns Tutorial Part One by Lambentworld Homestuck Horns Tutorial Part One by Lambentworld
WELP I tried to make a tutorial on crafting. I hope people understand my horrible English.

I also hope it helps a bit. If you have any questions, I'll be sure to answer them the best I can!

Part Two will come in a few days! Still waiting for them to dry.

Can I use a hot-glue gun if a crack appears.

I'm not entirely sure... but you could try and see how it works out.

tip, if you usually get it cracked and stuff, try paper clay. it's the same thing as model magic, but it hardens up so much, that you can use sandpaper to fix it. it's heavier, warning!

Hi! I've heard from many people that model magic doesn't work... How do you keep it from breaking?

Some people use something (Can't remember the name, sorry) to harden them so they don't break.

No, actually. I made Aradia horns with Model Magic and they aren't really light (3 days with horns on a headband xD).

how long do they typically take to dry? I'll be using these for a few days at a con so also will they be durable enough?

My friend made his three days before and a crack appeared in the one. I waited two days and they were okay. I'd wait around a week or so before (The inside has to dry).

If you're putting them on a black headband, how do you get it to stay on? Do you glue it?

you might want to put a wire in the middle of the horns then attach the wire threw the head band then add some heavy duty glue. If you're ever seen Heroes of cosplay Heather does this with one of her and her friend's creations.

Do you close the bin while they dry?

Moondancer24 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013
No. Try and think of the horns like playdoh. If you close the lid it stays squishy and moldable, but if you leave it open it will dry out over time. Thats what you want to happen.

Me and my friends are getting together to do a cosplay and I'm trying to figure out how much clay I need to get to make all the horns. (1 Karkat, 1 Sollux, 1 Vriska, 1 gamzee, and maybe a Nepeta)... Is it possible to make all those with one thing of clay (I'm starting to think not)... If not how many do you recommend?

I usually get the bucket of Model Magic and from that I can make a good deal of horns but for just those, I'd suggest going to the Crayola section of your local craft store and they should have single packages [I usually get the white ones] and you could probably make those with two packages. You might have a little left over but you could use it to make something like the crab-watch or some of Vriska's dice or something!

Just a question, but what sort of glue is it to fill in any cracks? I have super glue, but it seems too liquified to fill it it. ;A;
Reply
:iconlambentworld:
Lambentworld Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I use liquid super glue. It hardens as it enters the air pockets of the model magic and once it dries up [you can kind of push it gently together it together ad count to 60] you can sand over it and the thick paint covers up any imperfections.

Can you use Paper clay?
I can't seem to find any places near me which sells Model Magic D:

paper clay would probably work fine as long as you use a core, such as foam.

Sorry, I have a quick question: I've only used Model Magic once like five years ago so I'm not sure if maybe I did something wrong but
won't drying the horns on their sides like that flatten out the side its laying on? Or does it just stay in place?
Again, sorry.

:iconlambentworld:
Lambentworld Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It will if there's a lot of weight. I usually keep turning them over every other day so they don't flatten out.

Brilliant tutorial! I only have one question...
I once used Crayola Model Magic, just to mess around and make random things out of it, but when it had "dried", it was still a bit squishy and flimsy. It felt almost like Styrofoam. It was quite a long time ago so I do not remember how long I had actually waited for it to dry ^^" Is this the result you got? Or are they completely hardened/solid?
Reply
:iconlambentworld:
Lambentworld Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Uh if that's the case then it didn't dry. Model magic will dry and solidify to a sturdy structure over time as the model magic shrinks in on itself and fills its airpockets.
