On YouTube, I’ve watched several ways how to make good-sounding drums, and with biomaterials, I’ve tried to make a surface that will boost the sound of the bucket and make it sound like a drum.
For making a small drum using biomaterials I’ve chosen recipe from a presentation that includes gelatin.
Selecting the basket which is the main object, and Measuring the circle.
We need middle-size basket to have deep sound.
Cutting the circle which suits our basket.
As I've mentioned earlier I've picked the gelatin recipe. Materials: Water 240 ml Gelatine 48 g Glycerol Rigid 0 g Normal 24 g Elastic 48 g Tools: Waterproof textile Wood embroidery hoop Drying: Working Time 5 min Drying Time 7 days Place fridge / vertical drying
I've also added an orange color, to have a beautiful cover for the basket. Mixed for almost 30 minutes, to have thick material. It needs to be as thick as honey.
Gluing the circle to the surface.
Pouring the biomaterial in the shapes. Let them dry for 7 days.
This step I'll do this in the upcoming days, Because I've had a very tight schedule of concerts last weeks, so I'll do it when my Summer break starts.
