So I have had this idea for some time know and really just wanted to make it happen. Stumbling on to this skill share class was an awesome way to motivate me into making it.

#2. So I had some sketches of how I wanted it to look. Next I sculpted the Brain Can out of super sculpy then I painted a few layers of primer until I had a smooth even finish to hide some of the finger prints and tool marks. Then it was onto molding the sculpt and casting it out of resin.

These are the first resin pulls from the mold after a little sanding and drilling. I wanted to make sure the cap could be changed to any cap you wanted. Making Brain can into a cool DIY art toy/designer toy you could completely customize.

#3.Here are a few painted cans me and my friends messed around with.
