Maybe, but it would have to be a specific color/metallic finish.

Who wants a 3D Ouroboros?

Long story short, I had this made on a 3D printer:

[Image: 100_3900.jpg]

Currently, I have a food grade silicone mold of it being made, which is turning out wonderfully. That being said, I plan to use that mold to replicate this thing both in Chocolate (again, the mold is food safe) and in resin.

Currently I'm planning on selling some of the copies I make on Etsy. (I'm still not sure what price to put on them yet as I'm not sure how much each one will cost to make in the end, but I'm thinking of charging 10 bucks for a pair of chocolate ones and 20-30 bucks for one plastic one).

As for the plastic ones, I can make them clear, black, silvery metallic, or bronze. ALL of them are plastic, but I can put metallic finishes on these things. For example: [Image: Untitled.jpg?noCache=1370549106]

Anyway, I'm just interested in how many people would be interested in this. (not taking orders or anything, but I'd like a general idea of how popular these might be. On that note, to the mods, if you think this better fits in off topic or don't want this on the board at all, please feel free to move/delete).

Yea, looks good man, but I'd want a metallic one, if I was going to buy it. Also, it's upside-down in that pic. heh

As much as I want a chocolate one, I'd actually get one of the plastic metallic finish ones and hang it somewhere.

Poly resin is on it's way as are the metallic powders to make those finishes. Smiling

On a side note, here is what the chocolate reproductions look like (one half): (Removed image for now...will put back once ZeniMax has received their present of them. :D)
There's another really good pic on our guilds website too. (Second image in the rotating marquee on the forums home. (http://www.obsidianbrotherhood.com/forums )

@IST, it looks like it would cost $10USD to send this to NZ. (Edit: & if you wanted more than one/have friends who would also want them down under, I can pretty much send as many as you could want for that same 10 bucks). I still have to see how difficult it'll be to work with the mold, etc; but I'll post back here with more info soon.

Will definitely be making a few of these for sale seeing the success of the poll. :)

Maybe I should buy a 3d Printer instead, and just buy the schematic, lol. Would certainly save on shipping. lol What 3d printer do you use? Just curious.

Me wants chocolate!!! But I just started a diet (soon be buying this year's bathing suit) and so I think a metallic finished one would be splendid. I would definitely hang it up .... probably over my TESO battle-station computer desk.

Actually, they'll be receiving a ton of these courtesy of me & my guild at the end of the week. :D

(Now that I've said that, I've removed the awesome version that they'll be getting, just to try and keep it a surprise for the devs...I'm sure they do look around here once in a while!

If you could somehow make that into a wearable ring, I would defiantly have one.

I kind of liked the idea of a ring too, but it wouldn't work due to the spikes, and the detail couldn't be printed let alone replicated at that level. As it stands though, the plastic ones should make great necklaces, or a flat backed half could be awesome sewn/glued to a bag, laptop...etc.

Anyway, I won't be posting much more about these until the middle of next week. (Need to make a bunch more of these for ZeniMax themselves, ship them, and wait for the plastic resin/try it out to make sure I don't fail miserably at making them...) That being said though, I WILL be posting back here when I've got ones I'm ready to part with. :)
