sand printing


Sheikah Slate process pics

Many thanks to friend and coworker Charlie Skinner for his awesome 3D modeling skills and patience with the 3D printer!

Charlie modeled the slate to work as a case for my iPad mini to fit in. After he 3D-printed the pieces, we sanded the print for a good 8 hours to smooth it out. I then recreated the look of the slate’s screen in Adobe After Effects, and uploaded the loopable video to the iPad. Trying to create a glowing effect in the paint job was a challenge, but texturing the slate to look more like stone was a lot of fun! I used some leather strips to complete the handle.


my Grass type collection, I thought it would have been a cute idea if tamed grass types just hung around in pots like how dogs have beds, and their trainers decorate the pots and water their mons and take a billion pictures of their mons loafing in their pots on the window sill.

the only down side I could imagine is muddy little foot prints or sand/gravel spread all up and down the house after the mon is done hanging out in their pot

“A silent velvet footstep filled me, unwelcome yet so needed.
You finally found my hidden shore with grains of time and ocean of the most secret secrets, violet and red; left a trail of deep blue footsteps on my glowing beach of soul, and no matter how many times tides wash the golden sand anew, your prints can never be erased.
Each one a shining star in my quiet Universe…"
