Hey everyone,

I want to start off by saying a big Thank you to @Thermaltake and Andy for the opportunity, some really great talent involved in this invitational looking forward to seeing what everyone does.

I have an idea of what I want to do, just need to draw up a few design then I can order my paint, then I can show you what I am going to do.

Thermaltake have sent out 32gb toughram for this mod,

Hey everyone,

I  have come up with my idea, its a little bit different but for the time I have and working around family and my full time job, I think this will be cool.

I have done a quick drawing below,

This hand will have the toughram on show coming out of the ground, I have never worked with clay so this should be fun and I will get to play around with the colours.

I will try my best to keep you all up to date with my process.

So I have managed to get all of my materials in, a bit of a nightmare with covid.


So let's just jump straight in, let's start with the hand, I didn’t take many photos as I have video the process, but I have added a few screen grabs.


The main issue I am going to have is keeping my finger space correctly when making the cast. I also need to keep my hand in for 4 minutes.


I started off by mixing the alginate with 1900ml of water, I didn't have a lot of time before the mix went off around two minutes.

Once it went pink I needed to get my hand in, I needed to check the spacing for the ram and it went to me hand.

When the alginate goes white you know it is ready to pull your hand out slowly.

Once you have removed your hand you can start mixing the plaster, I use 450ml water and a bag of plaster, I don't have any photos of this bit, but have video. Once the plaster fills the cast I add some petg tubing as I need this to pull the hand out and for it to attach to the arm I make.


I pulled the full cast out of the bucket and broke the mold open.

I did snap a finger when I removed the cast but it's ok I glue it back on when I paint and sit the ram in for good. It Turned out to be a bit of a blessing.

I still have some tidying up to do on the hand but I am really surprised at how much detail the cast made.


You can see what the hand will look like with the ram, next up date will be the arm.

So I have added the arm to a 10mm thick acrylic, this will be the base. It will be covered can you guess with what?

So I started with the ram, I wanted it to look muddy with a bit of rust so it looks old.

it turned out ok, I am happy with this, now need to start layer the paint on the arm.

It is a very glorious idea, I fully respect your decision to make some money. Actuall,y I would like to say that I'm also talented person who was trying to work with music. However, now the title of this album reminds me that I'm unemployed, ####. It is all because of covid, yeah. This pandemic damaged all the spheres in our city and many people lost their jobs. Now I'm trying to find some jobs on https://uk.jooble.org/jobs-amazon-warehouse/London and, fortunately, there are still so many variants that might be useful for myself. Therefore, if you're also planning to earn extra money, visit this source and make sure how practical it is. Have a nice day)
