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!

How to weather surfaces like a pro

Sometimes an old scuffed up object can be just as pretty or even more so then when it was brand new. But who wants to wait several decades to get the surface to be naturally weathered? In this tutorial, Adam Savage from Mythbusters shows us and Will from Tested.com some of the techniques he uses to weather things, like this microscope case he has built. By using water, paint, sandpaper, mallets, bicycle chains and much more, he slowly tear down the surface of his case and ends up with a beautifully weathered look.
