The reason that makes our Dragons of Eden become one of most favourite keycaps comes from the sophisticated design. In this version 3, we continue to introduce a special design of our awesome creature in the modern fantasy world.
Since dragons aren’t exactly in reality land, we portray them based on our imagination but try to show the mythical beauty and the supreme power in the design. Starting from the idea, we list down plenty of references to go around and then choose the best idea to work on further. Therefore, in our new collection, you can find different shapes and different looks of these mythical beasts. When we complete drawing them, we start to cast them to put into the keycaps. The first step is always a casting process. When we form the shape of our dragon, we color it with different layers to bring a contour effect.
It has not been done for our dragon design. Another challenging work is casting the minor parts such as the dragon’s horns, mane, scales and legs. These small parts play an important role to decide how amazing our dragons are so we need to focus on them. We try to highlight the sharpness and make the contrast to the entire part of the dragon.
In addition, we apply the method of color mixing by hand-painting and airbrush painting to create a more highlighted effect on these details. We also use UV lighting effects to bring vivid color to our entire dragon.
After that, we put our complete dragon into a base for shaping and covering with resin. It takes more time to wait for it to get dried.
The ink naturally poured before the resin is completely dry is an important step to create an Eden effect and make our keycap become unique. This step normally takes about 2-4 hours for the ink drops are falling slowly one by one.
Especially, as we have different forms and sizes of the dragon, it takes several days or even weeks to complete all of them without any mistakes. If there is something wrong, we need to spend more time to start again. And of course, it needs not only time but also the patience of our team to make the most perfect one. The love of work is a motivation for our artists to deal with unexpected things.
Last but definitely not least, we never forget this indispensable step: the surface treatment after removing the keycap from the moulds. To create a glossy surface that helps to see the details inside, we need to sand the surface several times. Finally, the completed keycaps will be moved to QC check and the deliver to customers.
