Johan is in a local bar. Outside, the rain begins to fall harder, the wind gusting. He has been in Jerko Town for 3 days to seek a wooden house where made him go here by the earliest flight on Monday morning. However, all the locals he has ever met here, have no idea about that place.
“The weather of Jerko always drives us crazy, bro?” A man forwards to him to talk.
“Oh…But I checked the weather already before my arrival here.” Johan says coldly.
“Seriously I told you that if we go to the edge of the forest together, you will see the badass thing, Johan!” A man raises his eyebrow.
“Hey man!” Johan begins to lower his voice “I had to listen to the weird things from you at a flea market during the last day! And now, do you want to bother me again?”
“Ok! I bet you will back home without your goal – go to Godka Valley where has a wooden house near the edge of the wood you are seeking, huh?” A weirdo says sarcastically.
A house, Johan thought, “Why did he know that?” Sipping his cocktail slowly “Or maybe he heard this house as he met me at the flea market! Certainly”
“However, I will, now, back my hotel to sleep, sir.” He says, his voice growing sturdily.
It’s cold. Johan shivered, leaving the bar. The rain eased off. The cool night air brings with it the scent of damp earth. From the bar, the forest looks like the dark monster
During his way back to the hotel, a house almost stuck in his mind. Taking a phone out of his pocket, he fixes his eyes on an image. A house nestles peacefully between the edge of the forest and the majestic rocky mountains. Under the endless blue sky, the sunshine is dancing in the flowery field. As a beautiful highland, everything is falling into place.
How can I find this house??!! He sighs. Suddenly, he pauses. Somebody was following me, he thought. He turns his head back. A wild dog darts out behind the trash before disappearing into the green thicket nearby.
Johan is laying on the couch, staring out the window at the night. It is drizzling outside. He takes a phone out again. Something else is fallen.
“See you at the edge of the wood behind your hotel to go to a house – Weirdo.” A piece of paper with loose handwriting.
A thought comes into his mind “Ok! Let’s see what he want for my goal!”
Johan steps out a door, forwarding to the wood behind his room.
“I know you certainly come here, Johan!” A man is leaning against the pine tree, waving his hand to him.
“And heaven has still opened for us!!!”
While he just hardly spoke, suddenly it stops raining.
“See!” A weirdo teases him again.
The night goes back to a beautiful mystery. The cold night air brings with it the scent of damp earth. In the sky, the stars glitter like diamonds. While being on their way to a house, a weirdo takes out a shapeless stone from his pocket. They are stopping, before the dark orifice of the cavern.
“Something is wrong!” Johan thought. He slowly moves back and looks around himself. It darkens quickly above. All of the sounds of nature was suddenly silent. The silence was uncanny.
“C’mon! After going through this cavern, we will go to a house that you’re seeking, Johan!” A weirdo urges.
Immediately, Johan rips out his gun, screaming loudly “What do you want for me?”
“Ha’! Calm down, son! You just need to go with us together to Hegok.”
“Never ever” Johan shoots up the air. “I don’t want to shoot you, man!”
A man laughs loudly, evil in his voice “Let’s show me how you can escape me, huh? A weakness!!!”
Johan shot a man in the head, he even doesn’t have a chance to finish talking. However, he still is standing “Is this what you call “Killing”, boy?” continuing to laugh.
“What the heck?” Johan shouts, trying to remember his way to here for a moment. “The old bridge,” he thought. Soon Johan turns his step, running towards the direction he thought.
“Come back now, boy” A voice sounds like a horror monster, roaring.
As he turns his head back, a weirdo disappeared. A giant dark shadow is dashing forward him.
The forest seems, is never-ending. For some reason, the thin trees stand so close that hindered his way. All over his body, the vines which move like a snake, are gripping tightly him.
Suddenly, a voice calls calling down to him from above “Hurry up! Take your weapon, bro!” A weirdo is riding on the back of a dragon, throwing a gun to him.
Ahhoo, and that’s a bad miss! A gun hit him in the face. Right on the spot, Johan dropped like a stone, landing right on the ground. Something bright like flame cut through the vines and tree, the giant shadow disappears in the dim light. And then, the darkness comes.
Johan wakes up groggy and disoriented. His head spins from the blood loss. He realizes there’s dampness on his skin, he is leaning on something soft. He shakes his head “Where am I, here?”
He, now, is in the middle of the endless grass field. In the distance, the towering rock mountains are covered by snow. Beyond the grass the area is surrounded by pine trees – A house – that’s exactly what he is finding, which nestles peacefully by the edge, falling sleep soundly in the dark. He looks up at the sky and sees a strange glowing band of cloud arching over him.
“What a beautiful Milky way, ha’?” A familiar voice says. “And welcome to Godka Valley where is born of forest, Johan”
Then, we guess this is the moment everyone has been waiting for : How to make Born of Forest
Firstly, we cast resin on the base in which trees, mountains, and a house. The minimums times are at least 10 minutes for each keycap. Casting resin base, on the other hand, requires up to 8 hours to become harden. Then, the rough edges from the casting process are ground smooth. Each tree is trimmed carefully before dusting. It will take us about 30 minutes with base and trees, especially, spacebar profile and Herbts design will take more 20 minutes to complete deburring – dusting.
Next to the handmade-painting step, each detail includes the wood base, landscape, mountains need skill in the use of the hands. Each profile has its own time to be unique. For this reason, every single keycap is required up within 30 minutes to 2 hours before moving the next.
For each design, the grass is what we had to try many grass colors to make realistic nature. Times between 20 minutes to 40 minutes are considered suitable for sodding. Every single will has at least 3 types of grass and covered by 2 -5 types of highlight. For trees and houses, we stick carefully each detail within 20 minutes to 1 hour to be the basic scene of the forest. This step is considered a key point for this collection.
The keycaps will be moved to the final profile layers step. After casting into the molds with different sizes, those are put in paint pressure pots to be dryness within 16 hours. Finally, the artisans will clean the outer surface key-cap before having been tagged own serial number and added to inventory before delivering to you.
The trees, with a diameter of 1.5mm and a height of 3mm, are our challenge at this time. Within three different highlights for each one, we even can’t remember how many times we remade from the zero points for painting and sticking the trees on the base to able to get ultra-realism. However, while the creation is highly appreciated. We created a “Born of Forest” by our spirit, and “Born of Forest” is just with you!
