Hoth on ice.

Post by wrecks on Sun Jul 26, 2009 10:06 pm

I've been wanting to try somthing like this for quite a while, but only got around to it last night.

I made some small snow covered rocks and a frozen rebel, then stuck them onto some plastercene so they don't float. I put that into a plastic container filled with water then let it sit in the freezer overnight. To get the little beads of ice on the mountain part you have to take it out every now and then and spray a little water on it.









I was a bit worried it might damage the bricks, but I can't see any warping or cracking.

The vig is a little plain, but the ice technique is pretty awesome!

The name seems a bit redundant though... Razz

I think I'm gonna have to do this sometime... First step was freezing toothbrushes for April Fools, this second one will be freezing my lego's. A big step, to be sure.

You don't think I know that... But I'm saying it will take a good while to melt, and get the figure unstuck... nvm, ffs.


EDIT: Never mind, he used hot water. Laughing

Actually, I was pretty sure you knew that. The " Wink " was meant to imply sarcasm because the way I read your comment, the phrasing seemed to imply more that it would be hard to get the lego pieces out of ice not that it would take a long time... but this isn't that related to the MOC so I'll shut up now...

Nice idea! I might try that! Did you freeze the snowies' feet in the ice? If not, how long did it take you to get them to stand up? Razz

The rebel has a white face because its frozen and pale, and I got the snowies up on my first try, they seem to balance fine like that.

Never thought about doing this before. Very interesting indeed. That frozen rebel certainly makes the vig, definitely eye catching.

Nice idea wrecks! It turned out pretty well even though the MOC is a bit plain itself. Razz

It's all good, no cracks or warps, and I took the arm out and popped it back in, seems totally fine.
