Awesome collaborations happen when Bill schemes with Scotland, a prop building fire wizard! Functional objects will be combined with metal (and propane!) to create the Shishkebab flame sword from the Fallout video game universe.
During a recent trip to San Francisco to film some projects with Tested, Bill got to visit Adam Savage’s workshop and team up with the Mythbuster himself for an epic one day build!

A basic black, brown, or dark wash of acrylic paints can add a quick and easy weathering pass to your prop and costume projects that’ll make it look more realistic and world worn. In this video, Bill shows some simple techniques to take your prop finishes to the next level.
Using EVA foam and a rotary tool, Britt carves her own version of Surtur’s skull-like crown from Thor: Ragnarok.
When Dave Goldberg released this kit back in 2011, I was enamored with the design. After 6 years I finally managed to get my greedy hands on one and had a ton of fun putting it together.
