How to make a Blue Lantern by SirIsaac How to make a Blue Lantern by SirIsaac
Interested in making your own mini Power Battery? I decided to make a quick tutorial for how I made the Blue Lantern. You can follow these same steps for pretty much any Lantern (except for maybe the Indigo? I'm pretty sure they're batteries are their staffs, so yeah) just changing the color and shape of handles/base and top as needed.

And I should give credit where it's due - I borrowed the design for my lantern from these great CG models made by :usermaxvolnutt:.

Hmm I think your tutorial is wrong. u_u
I think you make a Blue Lantern by picking out some person or other, who has a heart fulla copious amounts of hope. Then you stick said person into a lantern shaped oven to bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until he/she correctly shouts out the poem you taught him/her earlier. Once they've done so correctly through the screaming and such, you take them out and place them on a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, you slather them with blue icing and enjoy. :3

But really. This is a cool tutorial. I should make one, except the Indigo Lanterns have sort of a crinkly stone-looking lantern that may be hard to replicate in clay.

Thaaat made me laugh way more then it should XD

Hmmm. There might be some ways to replicate a stone texture, actually. My suggestion would be to make your lantern, but cover the foil with a sort of thick layer of clay. Right before you pop it in the oven, crinkle a bit of foil and firmly press it into the clay, like a stamp. Do this all the way around the lantern, then cook it. That should give it a craggy appearance.

Oooor maybe use a /thin/ layer of clay, and crinkle up the foil before you wrap it. Then gently work the clay into the nooks and crannies with a toothpick.

Oh hey, both good ideas!
And then, I would have to put it on my staff and walk about with it, looking mystical and all. :3
