About

Dear Friends

First and foremost, thank you for your interest in my Kickstarter campaign. If for some reason you cannot make a contribution, help spread the word to others who might be interested in my project. I would be grateful to anyone who helps to breathe life into Frank Mayer Studios. If you do contribute, thank you so much, and let’s go on this adventure together.

It took me nearly three years to come up with what I call a “first stage catalog,” and I worked a few thousand hours to get here. While I'm far from finished designing new prototypes of antique components, I still want to put what I have created so far on the market. I want to offer customers, artists, and interior designers the chance to make great steampunk art and industrial decor with lightweight, cost-effective components. For this, I need to make silicone rubber molds of the custom parts I designed, and this is where your help comes in.

Check out this 12-minute video showing how to install some of my antique-looking components. Notice how realistic the texturing looks, especially on the cast iron. Some people even say lightweight imitations look real even from a foot away!

 Hi, my name is Frank Mayer, and I'm a Canadian artist who is extremely passionate about his work. I specialize in industrial sculptural art, inspired by late 19th and early 20th-century vintage engineering. I work with resin, high-density foam, wood, metal, motors, electronics, cement, and repurposed materials to make a visual experience that is truly unique.

 Three years ago, after a 20-year career in the aerospace industry as a technical illustrator, I decided to turn my life around and make a living as an artist doing a type of art that is very uncommon because of its sheer size and innovation. In order to achieve this, I had to design and build a catalog of antique mechanical components before making the actual art pieces to include in a portfolio. Before I stepped down from the corporate world, I gained extensive experience in 3D modeling, silicone mold making, painting, and using a CNC machine, so it felt natural to do something special with that knowledge.

 I sold a few art pieces in the past year, most of them huge in size and weighing a ton since the gears and some other parts were made of MDF wood. Showing my work along the way on Facebook, people were very impressed, and I received countless demands asking if it was possible to buy those components separately. At first, it was not my intention to sell anything other than complete artwork to collectors, but after many messages from people insisting about buying my components for making their own work, I realized that there is a huge market to create the parts for others to create affordable, lightweight, and beautiful creations. I will still make my own artwork, but the only difference is that YOU will be able to do the same, and some of you will probably be making way more impressive work than me. I now have a new slogan: "Help me help you make something beautiful".

 As you will see in some of my “making of” videos in this campaign and on my website, I already financed (from my own pocket) the silicone rubber to make molds of certain components. The problem is, in order to do a more massive production, I need many more molds of the same parts, so I can pour way more resin or foam to make multiple copies at the same time. Why? Because everything will be carefully and proudly made right here in North America. Furthermore, none of the gears (except the one in the video “Making of a Lightweight Gear") and other big items, like the steam compressor kit and the three-inch antique piping, was converted to a “ready for production” silicone mold.

 What you see below is the work of only one person going from concept to 3D modeling to fabrication to finished product, and I sincerely hope that I'll soon be able to build a good team, resulting in a full-fledged company. Except for the hardware, motors, and electronics, I designed and fabricated every part from my little office in my basement and my home shop in my garage. You might say this company is a one man army so far but I already have some soldiers on standby to assist me in the eventuality the campaign gets successful. If you want to read a nice but rather long story that reveals a lot about my credentials, philosophy, and experiences, check out my bio on my website at www.frankmayerstudios.com. I think and hope you will enjoy it!

 The following video visually explains the step-by-step process of how I make a small antique gear, from designing the computer 3D model all the way to casting a lightweight production part made of super-strong, high-density foam. The process that is shown also applies to the rest of my catalog of antique industrial components. Right now, these components are all made of MDF wood and other materials to build master parts. Those parts are very heavy and not practical or cost-effective considering the shipping weight and the sheer amount of hours needed to make just one. To lower the cost but keep the quality, everything has to be molded with silicone rubber to cast fast lightweight copies in rigid foam or plastic liquid resin, depending on the part.

 The main reason for my Kickstarter campaign is in this video, especially at 3:07 at the beginning of unboxing the gallons of silicone rubber. If you know about silicone mold making, you know it to be extremely expensive, which is why I need for your help. Most of the master parts are ready to go, and now it's a matter of buying the silicone rubber, making the molds, and casting the parts. Thank you very much for your help in making this dream a reality!

  • Buy a large quantity of (5 gallon) pails of platinum Cure Silicone Mold Making Rubber (Smooth-On).  
  • Buy the different resins, rigid expandable foams (Smooth-on), motors, bearings, electronics and lots of hardware.
 
  •  Hire some temporary help.

 At this level, it will be nearly impossible for me to complete all the backers pledge in a decent timeframe so a bit of help will have to be hired for the duration of the project.

  • Hire some more permanent help as needed.
  • Help me rent or buy a small commercial building depending on the amount reached.

  If this KS campaign gets major exposure because of your help, I will need to hire people to keep up with production, accounting, shipping, and receiving. You may have noticed that for the major part of this campaign I used the first person (I). My greatest wish is to turn that “I” into a “WE.” I'm not a production person nor am I very good at marketing, logistics, and payroll. I can do those tasks on a small scale, but it is simply not my cup of tea since it takes away from my precious design and prototyping time. I'm more of a thinker of concepts and maker of prototypes. If Frank Mayer Studios turns out to be a real team effort, in no way that the company will be doing business in a 20 X 25-foot garage with a CNC machine taking almost one third of that space. We would need to rent (and hopefully eventually buy) a small commercial building big enough to include a decent size paint booth and avoid stepping on each other's feet. Some small office spaces would also be nice.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter campaign, but I know very well how important it is to regularly report on the work done and to always be in touch with my backers.

Since Kickstarter is only the first stage of building my company (financing and making the silicone molds of my components) my reputation and the future reputation of my brand is on the line here. Therefore, there is nothing more important to me than getting your rewards delivered and for you to be completely satisfied. Furthermore, I just can't wait to see what great visual concepts you'll be making with my components, and I hope to feature the community’s creations in the Customers’ Gallery on my website.

Like I mentioned before, everything in this campaign is the work of one guy, ME! From concept to 3D modeling, fabricating, assembling, finishing, photo shooting, video shooting and editing--everything is from one brain, MINE! This is NOT a good thing. I want to turn that ME into a WE (team), and I already have more than three people ready to assist me if the campaign is successful. If the campaign becomes insanely successful, I will have to hire some more help, and finding crafty and quality-oriented people might be a challenge but not impossible. One other challenge I might face is to teach everything I know to a few people, and this may take a little bit of time since I would have to compress all my experience into a few hours or days of teaching how to make silicone molds and casting resin. Painting faux finish is child's play in comparison.

As I feel the best way to ensure my work is of the highest quality, a significant amount of time and care will be put into every single item, finished by hand, in-house in Canada. To be fair, my pricing reflects that. No foreign supplier will be involved except for the usual motors, electronics, and hardware, which can easily be found on eBay, Aliexpress or Alibaba, from hundreds of sellers, in giant quantity if needed. To be completely honest, it is very hard for me to give an accurate time frame on delivery since I have no crystal ball on how the campaign is going to perform. The major factor here is quantity, which is hard to predict. If you ask me, how much time it would take to build 10 D82 gears, 20 A24 gears, and a couple dozen pipe clamps, that's quite easy to answer. But if you ask me how much time it would take to make 10,000 of each of those components—well that's something else. I can only give a ballpark figure, and a more accurate timeline will be addressed as the campaign moves towards completion. One thing is for sure: everything will be delivered.

I have already delivered a few MDF original components and large artworks to clients, so I have some experience in shipping but surely not in shipping massive quantities of packages. This will have to be adjusted by reaching the assistance of FedEx, Purolator, DHL or UPS.

To sum up, my future team and I will be concentrating on building and shipping the items until all backers get their desired pledge. Should delays arise, we'll promptly let you know. I hope that you are as excited about my catalog of antique components as I am. Help me to help you make something great! Thanks for your support!
