Make your own snow crystals!

Snowflakes may not be a functional thing, but they are definitely beautiful. But instead of trying to catch them out in the wild, why not grow them yourself? In this video from SciFri, Ken Libbrecht, Caltech physicist and author of “The Secret Life of a Snowflake” tells us exactly how you can do this for only a couple of bucks! Now that’s some cool science! (Pun intended)

How to make a two-part silicone mould

Whenever you have made a really great thing, the idea of duplicating it comes automatically to mind. But the first one of anything takes a lot of time to make and you probably don’t want to make that effort for every following copy. So it makes sense to make a mould of it to make the copying easier. But if the shape of the object doesn’t allow for a one part mould, you need to make the mould in different parts. In this video from Tested, Frank Ippolito shows us just how easy it is to make a two-part silicone mould when you know how to do it. Do you want to know how to do it? Then just watch this brilliant video!

Masters of pottery!

While not a DIY tutorial per-say, we found this video from AMOCA to be so beautiful and inspirational that we could not resist adding it to our collection. Here we can see the huge potential of clay and how the right material in the right hands can result in truly astonishing objects. So just lean back, watch and be amazed!

So simple yet so extraordinary beautiful

Very similar to a video we collected earlier, this also shows how beautiful art can be made by simple means. Here, Brandon McConnell from Spacepainter show us how spray paint, some paper, a sponge, a palette knife and some sandpaper can be used to create a hauntingly beautiful nature scene worth much more than the tools and resources used to create it.
