Could you guys please make a resin notebook cover
Oh and if possible make it glow in the dark with glitter
Have you guys considered "wet washing/colorer washing/antiquing" some of your more detailed pieces? Such as your crystals and what not. This would highlight the raised areas and deepen the groves making those details really stand out. What sort of paint and/or resin mix would you do this with I wonder?
You know echo is one of the activation words that can be picked for Alexa devices....
23 minutes of Evan and Katelyn trying to establish an alliance with AI
It's the new normal. AI is going to be a common and integrated part of our lives going forward.
we must embrace our robot overlords
🤣The two other replies are so different🤣😂😂🤣😄😃😄😂🤣
@Chloe Butcher I was about to say! 😅
@Paul V It already is... the algorithm
The AI definitely stole the tomato joke 😂 I saw that on a popsicle stick as a kid and it was one of my go to jokes cuz I thought it was hilarious
I think you and I had the same Popsicle.
I agree I've heard and told that exact joke multiple times as well
i got that joke on chatgpt yesterday multiple times when i literally just said tell me a joke
Considering AI chat bots are trained on things on the internet, *everything* they say is technically stolen.
@SnowFox102 That's not really how ML language models work. You could also say that everything a human says is stolen using that logic.
E&K : We need an idea for an art project!
AI : Just genetically bio-engineer a plant to fluoresce in the dark, NBD 🤣
Easy DIY project 😂
OR design a bio-degradeable non-porous container material that is edible. Echo, that is feasible, but I don't think we can expect this level of chemistry and bioengineering from craft youtubers
@Susie Btbf you can get almost there with a small amount of culinary witchery
"to make this Ai a little bit less scary we made this friendly robotic face"
Made the most terrifying robot face ever. XD
don't insult Echo, HE'LL HEAR YOU
@Evan and Katelyn It looks like he's drooling when the black light is on haha
I agree the face dose NOT look "friendly" at all, it just looks TERRIFYING throughout the entire vid.
@Evan and Katelyn show this comment to Echo and I’ll insult him right to his creepy AI face XD he looks like half of his head was replaced with cat toys. Echo doesn’t scare me, AI’s can’t hurt you! Take that Echo!
I have an empty terrarium sitting around my house. I don’t mess with resin, but the glow in the dark effect is a really cool idea. Thanks for the inspiration! Well done on this project!
Maybe the video by sweetgum nyc is just right for you. He made a living florescent terrarium 👍
@Alexander Hilsendegen I’ll check it out! Thanks for the suggestion!
good luck on your terrarium project!
Yaaaaaaaaaas fluorescent terrarium! Speaking my aesthetic language
@Evan and Katelyn Thank you! =^.^=
See THIS is a great use of AI- as a springboard for human creativity, not an attempt to replace it. Keep up the great work, and give Echo my regards. He's doing his best XD
Was the video super fun? Yes.
Was the final product gorgeous? Yes.
Would I rather watch Echo than Evan & Katelyn? Never.
AI can't replace creativity and passion for creation. Plus you guys are funnier! And personality is important!
Getting an AI to prompt a video idea was a great idea though. I love creativity even more when it's within a set of constraints as unconstraint creativity is often constraint by the comfort zone of the creator.
That story echo told was genuinely good. It made me imagine echo as a tiny robot walking through the plants, just enjoying the masterpiece around him :)
girlie get out of here
no one wants to go in 'there'
Ay get! get of here
Hey! Get outta here, get!
I think you should paint the mushroom painting echo described, or have it describe s Bob Ross style painting that you then paint.
The garden looks awesome!
I LOVE the Bob Ross idea!👍🏻
Ooh! This is a great idea!
It would be sooo cool if they painted something described by echo but with the glow in the dark resin! So in the light it looks like a normal canvas but then you turn them out and BOOM! Beautifully colored masterpiece
Actually reminds me a lot of the plants in Subnautica!
Even pot design is similar to one in Subnautica
Yes! When I saw the thumbnail I thought they made Subnautica plants
yesssss! Evan and Katelyn videos are the highlight of my Fridays!!
HONESTLY! I love them. I legit rewatch videos of theirs 🎉❤
so glad you like the videos, thank you!
This one is amazing, more of it please
@Evan and KatelynIt allways makes my day too, greetings from switzerland and italy ^~^
id love someone to calculate the rough weight of all the resin products youve made in your house LOL
like- what percentage of UV resins is Evan and Katelyns house?
soooooo when are yall doing the "upside down room" idea?
One thing id like to see yall do is the "Miniature Room in the Wall" idea that has been going around;
people will use a pre-existing hole in the wall or make one (Evan hehehe)
then they decorate it with mini furniture and give it electricity.. I reckon you guys would go ADHD crazy on it
Combine the two ideas; make an upside down mini room in the wall!
You can peel the mold back a little and add either isopropyl alcohol or just water with some dish soap, squish the mold around to break the seal, and the the molded item should just pop out. A lot easier on the hands and the mold 😊
I was hoping they would ask Echo for the best methods for removing oddly shaped cured resin from resin molds 🤣 I kept waiting for Evan to start typing!!!
@Brianna Susz I know right! So funny!
Big subnautica vibes from the glowing plants!! Love it!
I clicked on this video because I thought the plants looked like subnautica plants lol
I would love to see you guys try and make squishies! They sell DIY kits and some people use clear rubber tape and then blow air into it?? I’d love to see you guys try squishies one way or another!
Or more cooking content! I’d love to see you guys try to make bread or pizza dough together or just something outside of your comfort zone! You both have had so much growth over the years, I love seeing your content grow and expand ❤️
Clear rubber tape?
@Rachelcookie321 its called nano tape they tape it abd blow it up with glitter to make a clear stress ball
@Galaxy girl thank you, I didn’t know what it was called I’ve only seen it on TikTok lol!
Yeees squishies are my favourite thing so I love this idea, joobie squishie incoming
Evan is one of the rare engineers that actually use there degree 😂😂
Depends what you mean by "use" their degree. Everyone I know who has an engineering degree uses it all the time by telling people they have an engineering degree 😂
You could also put a small UV LED nearby attached to a light sensor to keep the glow going all night. Just be sure not to angle it directly into anyone's line of sight.
Hmmm... maybe they should make the garden a levitating-rotating thing with a light behind it charging up the garden as it spins...
@William Orensky Good idea!
This is my favorite Evan and Katelyn video that I can think of. Due in no small part to Katelyn struggling with a mold for like 4 minutes
i'm glad my struggle was worth it haha
The bioluminescence kind of looks like Tamatoa when he turns bioluminescent in Moana! The colors match the scene perfectly!
This is such a awesome build!! it looks incredible - kinda reminds me of the plants on Pandora (from the JC Avatar movie) Amazing job!!
I want to decorate an entire room like this
I hope you two see this! DIY idea!! I haven't seen you make a resin PUZZLE! 😃 could even be glow in the dark so it looks one way at day and transitions to another image in the dark 🤩
Why was the glow in the dark plant such a great DJ?
Because it knew how to drop the "beet" and light up the dance floor at the same time!
I live for Evan supportively encouraging Katelyn
its funny that echo wont tell you anything that shows it has preferences or even a mind of its own but it’s completely fine with naming itself 😭 (also evans rocks look like mountain rocks and katelyns look like beach rocks)
oky.. im only 2 mins into this video but it reminded me of something that i did when i was younger: i bought a white rose and mixed food coloring into their water. and then my goth mind finally made a real life black rose and it was the coolest thing ever. im pretty sure you could mix some fluorescence mix into it and make a rose glow in the dark. please someone beat me to it and send me the link because im lazy :D
btw this chemical is called fluorescein and it is safe for plants. i just asked ChatGPT ;)
That sounds so coool! Now I want to try that with food coloring :)
Pretty sure Threadbanger tried something like this years ago on man vs. pin but it didn't turn out great. Then again Rob was known to mess up his DIYs lol
as one of those kids who picked up every rock she could get her grubby little hands on while at the beach, you both did indeed achieve good and realist pebble-osity. Katelyn's are just more agate-y or with some quartz inclusions.
Echo is by far more horrifying than having a faceless AI is.
I'm glad that Echo loved the garden. It looked awesome!
So glad that Echo was thrilled when presented with a glowing garden 👍👍👍❤
Man this turned out SO COOL! Now I want a whole room with these fake bioluminescent plants. You guys are so talented, and I love every single one of your videos! Keep it up, hope to see you again soon! ❤
I sincerely hope that one day you guys surprise us with an upside down room.
surprise, E&K have always had their room upside down, they just flip the footage in post. ;) hehehe
Your sponsors are actually really fun to watch! It’s really creative and amzing!😊
The garden turned out so cool! Glow in the dark makes everything more fun.
It turned out a million times better than I expected. I would definitely buy this, and proudly display it as a central piece, placed on my table in front of my sitting room window. Well done echo, as well as you both for bringing the idea to life so beautifuly. 😊👍
Fun video! Katelyn struggling with the mushroom mold made me giggle it was so relatable! For molds like that I will lift one edge and then spray some 99% isopropyl alcohol and it usually helps things come out easier 😊
This is top quality content. The idea behind this video and the actual glow-in-the-dark garden are super cool!!!
hi friends c:
just here to comment a lil appreciation for the editing katelyn does 😂 honestly it makes the videos so entertaining.
y’all unscrewing the nuts made me giggle and it was all due to the music & edit 🤣 good job guys 👏😙🤌🤝
Would be kinda cool to put a glass dome/wall on it and have a little smoke/vapor thing going on for mystical spooky vibes
Turning the lights off in your house must be so neat! You have made so many glow in the dark things!
This is so much fun! It’s so random but turned out so dope. It reminds me of the glowing plants from Morrowind. Makes me want to go back and play that game again!
I love your glow in the dark garden!
Super interesting the way the AI chose what project for you to make. Would it be possible for the AI to do that again?
I would love to see more episodes like this one. Thoroughly enjoy watching your channel.
wow that's probably my most favorite thing you two have made. Awesome results!
The finished look is amazing 👏
This is really beautiful!! I love it!!! Also omg, chatgpt is such a poet??? The way it described those paintings was so artistic and beautiful wtf???
This looks like something you would find in the Deep Dark, and I love it
You are just so beautiful together. I wish I had been just like you. I love your personalities❤😊So fun to watch either you have a project or you play a cool game.
Evans rocks look like one's you'd use to gravel your driveway, Katelyn's like ones you'd see in a vase or something
I LOVE IT!!!
Now add tiny Evan and Katelyn figures so it looks like you rule the Resin Forest xD
This is so cute, I actually love the final outcome! I would pay good money for this.. if anyone in the UK wants a project 👀
❤ I'm so proud of you guys, I love how people deserved to become famous.. unlike others...
I love to see more ai ideas and making it become reality, its really cool. ❤
I love the ascetics of Avatar and would love to see you too make an Avatar themed bedroom with what you learnt from this video ❤
why did echo's reaction to the garden make me emotional :') when he said he was thrilled and spent hours admiring it T____T
honestly as an artist and musician i find chatGPT to be incredibly helpful. my adhd makes it hard for me to come up with vocabulary related to the themes in a song i'm writing, even if it's vocabulary i already know, so i can give it the general themes of what i'm writing and ask it to give me words associated with that theme, which i can then use in my lyrics if i think those words make sense to use. i camn also ask it for warm up sketch ideas when dling digital art that i would have never thought of. honestly, the only generative AI i lika at this point is chatgpt.
as an example: when asked for words associated with plants it gave me lichen and biome as possibilities, which helped me add some internal rhyme by making the lyrics read 'i liken it all to a dream of lichen evergreen'.
also 'give me 3 random household objects' is a fun one for drawing warmups.
That’s SO pretty! Nice job, guys!
That turned out beautiful ❤️
I loved how it turned out I wish I had one those the planter kinda looks like it was something from Avatar! Great job on the video you guys did amazing!😃
I too feel the pain of AI replacing my job T.T
Love the Glow in the dark plant though, it reminds me of Avatar
Hi Evan and Katelyn! I would love to see you make resin rulers with both centimeter and inches. Love from Sweden!
The video was so fun! I knew it would be when I saw you showing ChatGPT's face. And the garden turned out really good, now I want one too.
so cool! you've inspired me to create my own *incognito glow garden houseplant* combining the fake plants and glow-in-the-dark-powder i already own
Watching you guys demold the pebbles is what I wish I could do with my skin to get impurities out of it, so satisfying!!
The first suggestion, the Room upside down has been done in Germany as a whole house which is an attraction to go visit. It is really fun to look around and take pictures there.
Me and my girlfriend always look forward to your videos, we always watch your videos together. You guys are the best.
Y’all should make a live video of you guys watching your old videos ❤
I always enjoy you videos! I was only slightly disappointed we didn’t get a “resin time” transition. 😂
🎉that garden is awesome! It's like 2 in 1 with way it looks during day then night!
Loved this video! The glow in the dark pebbles reminded me of yooperlite, it's a natural rock that glows under UV. I have a piece of it and it's stunning! I'd love to see how you'd recreate its effect and maybe some other gemstones like labradorite and opal :)
I think it turned out super cute, might not try and mess with resin myself, but the glow in the dark plants were nice to look at. Might try and do something like this myself, without the resin.
Nicely timed to keep me entertained on a sick day! 😃
Rotisserie motors are a simple off-the-shelf solution for what Evan made to spin the planter. For example, that's what people use when making custom fishing poles, which are coated with a protective resin. You can also use a brush to spread the resin out rather than your hand; less messy and still ends up smooth. :)
The rotating resin pot holder! I coated a dance pole in resin after painting it with a galaxy pattern and made a similar thing, had it set up in the garage for a week while I did all the layers :D
A fun idea for a painting video is to have the AI come up with a painting which you have to paint by the descriptions! I would love to see that!
Love this video! AI are so cool but so so weird! Love the end product, I would definitely put that in my room somewhere! Love you guys sm and all your videos your do!
Just a suggestion- I’ve found soapy water helps to demold resin! I absolutely love this project so much, I will be stealing this idea 😂
This reminds me of stuff Tyler Thrasher does! I loved seeing E&K's take on it!
I would love to see you paint a painting of a description from echo of a imaginary painting😅
This looks really cool guys, great work!
This little garden is sooo cute omg ❤❤❤
Oh my goodness. This came out AMAZING!!! I was already very excited with the idea of a glow-in-the-dark garden, but man it looks amazing seeing it all come together. Another amazing project you 2!!!
i Love it :) looks awesome with glowing powder in the resin... amazing work :D
I've seen real white flowers be dyed by putting food coloring in their water because it gets absorbed through the stems, but I wonder if putting glow powder or another glow in the dark product in the water would do the same thing? You could even try to preserve those flowers in resin like Francis and Meatball 🎃 and keep it as a display. Might be fun to try idk!
Y’all are so cute. This is gonna be fun.
the story at the end 😭 stop making our AI overlords sound so wholesome
Oh my gosh I am totally going to make this!!!!!!!! I don’t have any resin. But I am excited to see what I can come up with!😊
Looooved this project! Also Katelyn I am obsessed with your sweatshirt!!
It reminds me of the Avatar movie even just from looking at the thumbnail- excited to watch how everything unfolds!
(It also kind of reminds me of this game I played as a kid called Scaler🧐)
You guys could never be replaced by AI!
Katelyn looked awesome in the glowing dice thumbnail!
That would be cool way to light up a walkway at night.
Cool! Kinda reminds me of the alien plants you grew in subnautica (even the planter looks like that!)
Yeah, though, AI doesn’t “understand” humor yet. The tomato joke already existed.
This little garden makes me think of Subnautica! The glowing part of it, specifically :3
This is actually hilarious. My best friend's senior capstone project (we're both biochemistry majors) is genetically engineering plants to fluorece 😂
Please try foaming silicone!!! I’ve seen some really cool stuff on places like insta!!! ❤
The blacklight moments made this video so funky and cozy! Nice vid :3
Love how it called you guys best friends... that's all you are LOL
So cool! Reminds me of the plants in the sims from the StrangerVille pack.
Echo loved it almost as much as Joob loved tiny Joob 😂
One of our favorite episodes yet. My daughter and I will have to try it. Only thing missing..... the resin time song.
You guys are so funny 😂 I was cracking up whatching Katelyn struggle with that mushroom
I love the way this came out ❤ it reminds me of nighttime in subnautica 😅
