The YouTuber Skytomo is blowing people's minds with the things he makes with aluminum foil.

Some of you may have seen the show Forged In Fire on the History Channel. Some of you may even think that you're an amateur blacksmith because of that show. A man in Japan has shown that you don't need an entire forge to be a blacksmith. Keep scrolling to find out how this man does incredible things with a roll of aluminum foil.


The first thing he does is roll up the entire box of foil into a large ball. Be careful doing this because aluminum foil can be sharp.

Then Skytomo uses a hammer to make the foil more compact.

He sped up the video, but it must have taken him a long time because he looked a little tired after that part was all done.

This project require a lot of hammering to make it flawless.

So unless you have a lot of time, this project probably isn't for you.

Next, you see Skytomo go outside to continue his hammering.

This goes on well into the night, but he had to make sure every little bump was taken out of the ball of foil.

He must of gotten tired because he enlisted the help of some children.

It looks like they enjoyed helping, though!

Skytomo then put the ball into a towel, leaving the top exposed, and put it into a clamp.

He then began the tedious job of sanding every little imperfection down. After that, the video shows Skytomo putting the ball under the water to do some more sanding.

After all of that hammering and sanding it's smooth already.

But there's more work that needs to be done to make it perfect.

The next day it was time to polish the ball.

Using polisher, Skymoto ran a light sander over the ball repeatedly.

After he was done with the polishing it was time to wipe it clean.

Using a soft cloth, he wiped all of the excess polish off. Look how smooth and shiny it is!

He spent quite a bit of time polishing the ball.

After all, it was once nothing but a ball of rough foil.
