from Studio La Cachette
Joaquim just forwarded this to me. HOLY MOLY! Watching something like this makes me forget all the pain of making animation, at least momentarily. What a joy. Can’t wait to see the whole piece.
Complete trailer from where the previous sets of Gifs came from.
Still major wow.
My long-awaited and very much expected rejection from Annecy came today! I vow that one day I will make it there… It is a glorious dream :<
You can’t go see my film in France, but you can watch it to your heart’s content here :>
You didn’t get IN?! This is amazing! Ugh! Many feelings were had<3

I love gold dragons even more now
I ACTUALLY HAVE the book on my desk and I’ve always wanted to see the flight of the gold dragon, so this is pretty sweet if you ask me. The illustrations in this book are incredible, and this brings back a lot of good memories xD
I also have this book at home, and UGH! These are faaaantastic~ I could stare at them all day long!
Monster High: Death Waltz
I finally found some time to finish these up, when i first started I had a whole paragraph in mind to put here, but really all it is is I wanted to design my own line of Monster High dolls so I did :)
This is, by far, the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen done with the limited resources provided within Minecraft.
I know a ton of you have been waiting for this one. Teaching you to make your own plastic keychains!
To start off, I think the biggest question everyone has is what I use to make them. I work with shrink film. You might be familiar with Shinky Dink brand shrink film as a kid. I use Grafix brand white inkjet shrink film. The inkjet kind is relatively pricey compared to the regular kind. If you’re using regular, I don’t recommend you stick it in your printer. Sharpie markers would be good for that.
Alright, now open up the file with the images that you’re working with. Make sure your images are a lot bigger than you want your finished product to be since they shrink significantly.
You’ll also want to lighten the opacity to about half. I go somewhere between 50-60%.
Now print your image out! I’ve found that it works best for me when I have it at the plain paper setting, and standard print quality.
Holepunch with a 1/4” holepuncher BEFORE you shrink them. It’s so much more work to have to punch holes when your plastic is thick!
Cut out your design, leaving the amount of border you want.
Set them on a tray for convenience. An aluminum foil sheet works too, but I recommend cookie trays because they are easier and quicker to get out of the oven.
Preset heat. Your shrink film package will tell you what temperature to set it at, but I find that it isn’t always accurate for me. I generally set temperature to 350 degrees or so.
Put them in the oven. Remember to keep track of time! I leave them in for about a minute and a half.
After time is up they should be super small! Magic!
If your charms are not flat, put something heavy on it right out of the oven when they are still hot and malleable.
If you’d like to, you can seal them now. In my last two batches, I used clear topcoat nail polish. The problem with that is that I need between 3-5 coats of it, and it takes a while to dry. I’ve been experimenting with modpodge.
For lariats, you can use jump rings or lobster clasps.
Here is one that I made that wasn’t sealed. The finished texture after shrinking is a little bit rough. There’s nothing wrong with leaving them unsealed, but because they are inkjet printed, the colors wash right of without protection.
This is one that was sealed with modpodge. The colors become a little more vibrant and smooth and water resistant. Things often get stuck on when applying or drying so be careful.
These ones down here were sealed with clear nail polish. They come out shiny if you put enough coats, but the grainy texture will still be there.
Well, there ya go! Have fun making your own keychains!
