The Release of the AncientCritters will be in late February with a first run of 33 DIY pieces, handcasted and numbered by the artist. Differents colorways and some surprises will follow till then, stay tuned!
Now it’s time to share some secret WIP shots of our new fellas. Last week our studio turned into a greenhouse and the first AncientCritters resin casts were used for planting series of experiments. I’m petty sure the AncientCritters will bring the best out of you and a green touch for your desk & toy collection! ^_^
You can see on this short slideshow the silicone molding process of AncientCritter ALTRO. I have placed the the prototype and the seem line in a slightly strange 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.
Designer and Architect Mathias Bax from Germany has created his first DIY Resin Toy the Ham-ster Cavy. I’m pretty shure the Ham-ster will become a nice plattform to realise lots of awsome custom jobs. The Ham-ster’s comes in two versions one with movable arms and one with fixed arms (for kids;). A piece will cost approximately 10$ plus shipping costs.
So get your hands on your own DIY Ham-ster straight from his creator and place an order at email@example.com. He will handling production and shipping by himself. The first cute fellas will find their new owners right now in January 2010.
After reconstructing the “Ancient Critter No1″ information from a tiny bio-harddisk we were finally able to revive a first specimen of it! For the time beeing it’s growing fast and we feed it with fern and other ancients herbs. But see for yourself!
More about these long time died out “Ancient Critters” next week…
