Have a bunch of wood & resin toy projects going on right now. I really hope i can release these little fellas as a DIY edition when spring is coming and the sprouts are growing! ^__^ I still have a lot of details to sort out, especially how to export the cress seeds from the “Happy Gardening” set i’m planing…
Meanwhile some WIP pictures of my first custom i’m working on: “Golden Age” CRESS CRITTER. All painted by brush and metallic acrylic paints, i hope you like him!
My test labs are bursting full of new organic experiments with all the different CRESS CRITTER’s. I had to send out our best recources to get some new rare species and varieties for the upcoming “Happy Gardening” Kit! Running tests on “Nasturtium officinale” and “Medicago sativa”, looking very promising so far…
It’s time to share some secret WIP shots of the new little chaps. Last week my studio turned into a greenhouse and the first critter resin casts were used for planting series of experiments. I’m petty sure the CRESS CRITTER will bring the best out of you and a charming green touch for your desk or toy collection! ^___^
I made a short slideshow where you can see the silicone molding process of the CRESS CRITTER. I have placed the the prototype and the seem line in a slightly unusual position for this two part mold but I had the feeling i should give my silicone-plug-system-technique™ a shot! ;)
Now after the first few resin copies i have to say, casting is going pretty well so far …and I’ve got some wicked ideas for these fresh resin Critters right now! Stay tuned.Read More»
Short update on my CRESS CRITTER. I just have applied a basecoat filler and sanded down the ABS layers until everything was sleek & smoothed out. Then i applied the finish with white NC-paint to the prepared 3D print model. Now this fella should be good to go for a first mold! Check back soon…
After reconstructing the CRESS CRITTER information from a tiny bio-harddisk i was finally able to revive a first specimen of it! For the time beeing it’s growing fast and i do feed it with fern and other ancients herbs. More about these long time died out CRESS CRITTER next week…! :D
I wish you all a Happy New Year! The year is pretty young and i’ve so much new stuff in work!
First of all, the last few XMAS PEARBLOCK’s will find a new home today at my grandparents and grandaunt’s shelfs. They where a great joy to give away as Christmas presents. So i have one last left (No. 01/16). I will sell him here on the Page for you in a few days! Stay tuned if you want to grab this unique handcrafted 2.5 inch Wood Designer Toy by Pepe for your own collection.
Now to the latest: CRESS CRITTER – Keep your eyes open, long gone species will revive 2010! Check the data-sheets I found deep burried in a secret vault of this ancient little fella… Strange things will come, be warned! ;)
