How to make a dragon
First, the dragon will be multiplied into many patterns, there are three different dragon breeds with three different size of keycap.
Each dragon after being formed, or shaped , it’ll be painted with one finishing paint layer and three more color layers to make contour effects.
And now, this is one of our important parts – dragon’s smaller details such as eyes, mane, dragon scales and tail. Each detail is being highlighted to create the separately sharpness and contrast for each part of the entire dragon.
After that, we will forming the dragon in the mold with resin. Three breeds of dragon, three different forms, we have to be very careful and detailed on this step. Each detail is abide exactly the best design of each dragon. Every shaping step takes 8 hours to finish, if there is any mistake even if it’s a very small mistake, we’ll have to starts again until we have exactly what we want on our product – the perfection…
The next step after the dragon has already in shaped inside the mold and the Edens colors effect has done. Depending on the color, each step will be different from the other, like waiting for the color beams to settle down, not too long or too short, not too small or too large. Every step is being repeated over and over again and abide exactly the palette of each keycap, each color beam is being created exactly the position that we wants, and no need to discuss about the harmonious. It also takes 8 hours to finish, after all the color beams are on their right positions, we will put it inside the pressure pot, this time we’ll have to wait for around 12 hours. .
When keycap have enough time to get hard inside the pressure pot, the next step is cleaning and sanding to create a ultra smooth surface for each keycap. There are 4 step for sanding, and the very last step is create a glowing and clearly surfaces.
