The video game “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” captivated young Ana to the point where she decided to build her own weapons, armour and other items from the game. Fast forward some years, now Folkenstal is known internationally for her work with silicone and cast resin. To enable other creatives an easier start in these techniques, she published a book for beginners called "Cast like Magic – A beginner’s Guide to mold making and resin casting”. Her second book “Creative Projects with Cosplayflex” is also going to be up for sale at her stand at the HeroFest.
Folkenstal is going to hold a daily live-casting at her stand, meaning that she is going to be working on one of her projects and narrating live, what she’s doing and why.
