Introduction: Litwick Candle Holder
Here I made a Litwick Candle Holder from the wondrous world of Pokemon. I made this because I love ghost Pokemon and the Litwick evolution is one of my more favorite ones. In this instructable, I will tell you everything you need in order to make one of your very own. To download the stl please click the link below. Thanks!
Step 1: Step 1: Gathering Your Materials
For this project you will need a number of different paints and other necessities. You will need:
- Paint brushes
- Thin black sharpie or small point maker
- Yellow oil based sharpie
- Acrylic paint
- Small 1.5'' diameter wax candle
- stl of the Litwick candle holder
Step 2: Step 2: Print Out Your Litwick Candle Holder
This should be the first step. If you have the stl and a 3d printer, print out the stl. I would recommend that the infill be around 60% and you can choose whether or not to use a raft or supports if you think your printer is up to the task. I would suggest for lower end printers to use both though. If you do not have a 3d printer, then I would recommend you outsource the stl file and print it from either an online resource like 3d hubs or find a friend or local service that can make one.
Step 3: Step 3: Paint It
Painting the candle holder will take some time so make sure to do even coats and add more than one(especially for the base). Allow each coat to dry before adding more and come back to it when necessary or until you feel satisfied. For the eye, use the oil based yellow sharpie to paint over the eye after the paint has dried and apply as much as is needed. Do the same thing for the mouth but use the thin black sharpie instead.
Step 4: Step 4: Put It All Together and Admire Your Work!
After everything has dried, you can add the top part to the candle holder or add your wax candle to the top for a more real like finish.
Step 5: Step 5(optional): Make Him Some Friends!
Had fun making it? Make some more! It's always more fun with friends! Hope you liked this and enjoyed this as much as I did.
