tinted resin


So I have decided that I definitely needed another hood ornament. My obsession with Pokemon Go of course being the impetus :) And of course i had to represent my team… Team Mystic!

As always, modeled in Rhino, printed on my Flashforge, and hand painted. Although this time I added the extra complication of creating a mold and blue tinting some resin to create the transparent gem!

Hope you all like it! Go Team Mystic!

Don’t miss the moules! Marcel Broodthaers: A Retrospective closes Sunday. Broodthaers’s irreverent sense of humor and love of wordplay are visible in his use of mussel shells and eggshells, which he obtained from a local restaurant and which became his signature materials. In French, the word moule means both “mussel” and “mold”; in Broodthaers’s hands, the discarded shells gave form to artworks with multitudes of poetic meanings.
