I came across this ’Thing’ while browsing through Thingiverse and was immediately excited. I love Oni Masks and this one looked really well designed, I couldn’t wait to print it.
I love Japanese and Chinese culture; I was brought up in a household where books, ornaments, art and furniture arrayed our house. Whether it be hung on a wall or placed on a desk, this piece is definitely an eye catcher. I knew that adding some paint would really bring this piece to life. I wanted the piece to have a worn, abstract feel, and growing up in an artistic house I learned about the influence/meaning of colour…
I utilized colours; Yellow; for happiness, positivity and optimism, Black; mystery, White; simplicity, purity and openness, Red; intensity, fun and eye-catching, and finally Silver; to keeping with tradition. Using spraypaint and markers I set to work.
I had no rigid vision for this piece, which really allowed me to just flow creatively. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and am content with how it turned out.
Make it yours!
