About me

My artist name is Folkenstal, but you can call me Ana anytime ;)
I’ve started with propmaking by the end of 2012. In my own apartment workshop I build everything from weapons, armor, jewelry to other items. When I get the chance, I visit conventions to meet other artists who share the same passion as me.

As far as I remember, I’ve always been drawing or crafting something using all kind of materials. Started with paper and cardboard as a kid, and later worked with Sculpey, clay, and crafted jewelry for a while. And currently working with Apoxie Sculpt, PropFoam, thermoplastics like Cosplayflex, and resin to build anything I like.

Find me working on twitch creative where I stream every weekend if you want to see what I do.
You can ask questions or just watch me building things. Head over to twitch.tv/folkenstal

The first time I started with propmaking in a determined kind of way was when I played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I wanted to have a few weapons in real life, but the merchandise store of said video game didn’t have anything useful, so I googled and stumbled upon the “art of propmaking”. It fascinated me to create something in real that is actually only available in a video game. So after a lot of reading and watching videos I decided to see this as a possible hobby of mine which I could truly enjoy.

I love propmaking, it gives me challenge and troubleshooting is a big part of it.
Also trying out new materials is always valuable for my next projects to come.
