DIY Pencil Sculpture – Man Vs. Pin #31
What’s up, Rob here You’re watching Man Vs. Pin This week’s project comes in from Zhe Kang Who suggested these mini pencil sculptures Which, are pretty amazing I mean, that is.. Just ridiculous And then there’s that, which I couldn’t carve in real life much less on the tip of a pencil But, I’m gonna give it a shot Maybe with something a little simpler Like a letter, or a tree, or something We’ll see I got myself a few different kinds and sizes of pencils and grabbed my Exacto knife kit I got started with a regular #2 pencil Took my sharpener Gave it a few twists and got myself a good point Then I began slowly slivering a bit more wood off in order to expose some more of the lead For the first one I’m thinking about doing the letter A I figured it’s shape already looks like the tip of a pencil so it might not be that hard I carefully began to shape the sides by slowly shaving off microscopic particles of graphite Eventually I started chipping away at the base of the A in order to start a little hole After a couple careful minutes of digging and slowly sculpting I was pretty successful and managed to get a hole started So far, it’s a lot easier than I though it would be- ..Would be… Um… Or not. (Poor Rob) That’s cool, that’s why we have a sharpener Just get that tip back Start right over again Perfect Uh..Um..Ok, back to the sharpener, whatever Oh what the- *BLEEP* Really. Ok, yeah, really. Yeah, that just..happened again.. Oh you..*Bleeper* Alright, this is some *Bleep* right here, these pencil suck! *Bleep* these pencils Alright, I’m just gonna go for the next pencil size up These are the kind that you use in grade school, They have a bigger tip on them So that’s gonna help (I hope) Alright, forget the letter A I’m going for something a little simpler, like a, like a pine tree Nothing fancy, just wanna see if it can be done However somewhere, within the process, this sculpture turned into a middle finger Was this pencil *Bleeping* flipping me off?! Jerk. Oh *Bleep* Alright, sharpen and move on Sharpen and move on. Now the graphite in this pencil is definitely different from the last, it’s a little bit softer Which definitely helps Better quality, overall Pencil lead’s not breaking every 5 seconds Ah! You sonuva *Bleep* Zhe Kang, this is all your fault Sooo..*bleeping* perceptive, aren’t you? That’s cool I’m gonna *Bleeping* Sculpt this pencil if its the last godd*mn thing I do Here we go, that’s nice, aw yeah That’s *Bleeping* Real *bleeping* nice That’s shaping up real *bleeping* nice Just looked like a *bleeping* Tree, GODD*MN IT Goosefraba Alright.. I got a contractors pencil next because I saw some cool ones with these However, I have absolutely no *bleeping* clue how to sharpen a square pencil Not in this *bleeping* thing, obviously, because That doesn’t look right, and.. And, eventually, it just ended up cracking the pencil in half So…Awesome. Alright, last resort, *Bleep* It This time around I’m going for the biggest pencil that I could find. Along with an appropriately sized carving tool Alright, that’s probably a bad idea… Now there’s absolutely no way that I could mess up on this big of a tip I’m still going for the tree design Ah, which I think would be probably the best- Oh what the *Beep* is this? Wait, so this..just..comes out? (It’s not a real pencil Rob) Can I put it back in? Well, that doesn’t work, there’s no stability , I can’t even carve it. Novelty pencil Bull *Bleep* I give up. I’m just gonna smoke some of these pencil shavings Call it a day.
