Do you remember the time? The time we went looking for the stream of blue? Life searching voyage led us to the Oasis and how hasty we built up life. Pictures in front of our eyes are no longer pigment and paint, but the pixels of light instead. And guess what! We have found a prophecy hidden in the prophetic poem that we dug from the bottom of the antique Oases before.
“The Wise Man said : It’s like magic in the way we communicate with our modern creature – computer – by singing into their ears (RAM) the lyrics of 1 and 0.
We’re now just moving rapidly and sometimes we don’t see. That Final Fantasy was like it, used to be….”
“… Hey hey! The Wise Man ask Jelly Key what is it doing?
It said: We used to paint Life on the cave walls, now we’re trying to paint the Oases in Pixels.
Magnify the square dots, take experience from the past and make it great again….”
Don’t stare to close, if you don’t want the enormous light from the bottom of these 8-bit Oasis shine through your soul.
How Jelly Key rolls
And we all know since the dawn of custom keycap craft, artist will first work with their clay and sculpt in order to mold and cast with resin or epoxy or some other kind of plastic. But when it comes to the artifact keycap, our artists and craftsman usually face the material lacking issues. They must look for the relevant materials and components out there that meet the quality of a particular design, or sometimes they evenhave to turn a seemed-irrelative-items become usable ones.
In Artifact keycap series, what cost us most time is to find the thinnest slices of wood in Vietnamese & Japanese market, and slenderizing those from an almost 2.0 mm thickness into 1.8 mm, then gradually to 1.4 and ~0.7mm. That’s our revolution to improve the wood slenderizing method while working and we found that the thinner the wood pieces are, the smoother effects they bring about in final appearances. Especially we had applied this technique in the Forbidden Realms keycap making.
So now you’ve seen the toughness of how artists facing while working with unavailable materials and components, how a constant our artists craftsman are and the best consequences they want to bring about. Hope this tour will help you somehow picture the value of what is called handmade Artifact keycap. And be ready to behold Jelly Key next generation of Artifact keycap series.
