Become Any Character While You Chat with FaceRig It’s not always cool when modern technology finally catches up to real life. Case in point: smart watches. Yeah they were cool when TV spies had them, but they’re kind of awkward in real life. Via: Red Ferret Electrolytic Etching of Brass Update: I'm often asked about the thickness, type, and source of brass I used for these journals. I am very lucky to have a local place, Metal Source, were I buy most of my supplies. I used 22 ga. (.025") brass and any alloy will do. In a pinch you can buy brass door kick plates at your local home center, but you will need to strip the lacquer. A while ago I saw Mark Frauenfelder's limited edition Moleskin notebooks on BoingBoing and immediately thought of using the electrolytic brass etching process that I've been experimenting with to make some similar notebooks to give as gifts this year. As you can see they came out quite well and the Moleskin's two century history lends the project a certain Steampunk street cred. This is a technique I adapted for easily impressing images into brass plate. First we use a laser printer to print a negative of our image onto a sheet of inkjet glossy photo paper. Next we use an iron set to it's highest setting to melt the toner onto the brass plate.

Although she only learned this elaborate skill in her sixties, she has since created nearly 500 unique designs that have been photographed by her granddaughter NanaAkua. Impressive does not even begin to describe this feat of dexterity, imagination and keen eyesight. The difficult process of becoming a recognized temari craftsman in Japan is tedious and requires specific training and testing. Temari, meaning "hand ball" in Japanese, are embroidered toy balls fashioned from the silk scraps of old kimonos. In Japan, the temari were highly regarded gifts given to children by their parents on New Year's Day. NanaAkua's flickr via [trendhunter]

The Pixar Theory an Interactive Story, by @97thfloor #pixartheory Copper Plating and Etching Altoids Tins UPDATE: There's some great information on this page and it's comments, but I've recently published a far more comprehensive article here: Etching Tins with Salt Water and Electricity With this project I wanted to try a number of new things: Magazine pages as cheap toner transfer mediaCopper electroplatingEtching Altoid tins with a salt water solution The copper plating met with mixed success, but the other two methods resulted in some nice pieces. Note: blue vitriol and muriatic acid are archaic names for copper sulfate and hydrochloric acid. Magazine pages for toner transfer: While looking for information on transferring toner using a fuser assembly from an old laser printer I ran across several websites where people suggested using glossy magazine pages for transferring printed circuit board images to a copper substrate. Preparing the Altoids tins turned out to be harder then I predicted. Next we: Copper Plating Altoids Tins: From the picture below, this appears to work. Foom!
