My first animation planned involves a hover-board, and being a huge Back to the Future fan I've never been so excited to make a prop before! Its without a doubt the coolest thing I'm ever going to make!
Here's the making process! ^_^
I dug two little holes out of the balsa wood so I could glue magnets for the armatures feet.
Then I glued the little extra bit of wood to give the board a better shape.
Then the rest was all needle-felted! I cut the purple felt slightly smaller than the board, and then started to needle-felt the pattern into it.
So the board will be able to look like its hovering with the magic of After Affects a rigging point was needed so I glued two bits of K&S to the bottom pattern and covered it with grey felt circles.
When both sides were finished I needle felted them to sheets of bright pink felt and cut around the pattern, leaving a boarder of pink felt.
Then to finish I sewed both of the sheets of felt together around the wood. Here it is finished. :}
Oh, and heres how the rig attaches to the board! Pretty nifty right?
