I now collect lots of rubix cubes as swag for the sole reason to try to sell them later. :) That's one of my far off dreams, to make an etsy account.

Thanks for the fave, I hope you try it!

Actually, this tutorial uses the easiest-to-find materials out of all my tutorials. You can change how you do the chain, but really, that's all I can think of offhand. :)

No worries, your alternative was lovely & clever!

Okay, I'm making both this and the pendant, and I've hit a couple of speedbumps while making the cube.

First bump is the old Rubix's cube I found, while it is a plastic 3x3 cube, the colored parts are also plastic, and seem to be stuck on by glue dots, as I discovered when I pulled one off. Is there a way to remove them (both the squares and the glue dots) without damaging the cube?

Also, the only gold sticky-back paper I could find was actually a kind of foamy sticky-back paper like those craft foam stickers things. Will that be okay, or should I try to find the "legit" stuff? My only concern about the foam is that it'd be easy to take/fall off.

Great to hear from ya! I still must thank you for fav'ing the polymer tips deviation, and I'm glad to hear you're crafting up some N-related accessories. How are you making your pendant?

Very interesting! I haven't seen a rubix cube like that, where there's a plastic colored square and there's a glue dot holding it down. Do you have a screenshot online somewhere of what this glue dot looks like?

Without me looking at it myself, I can't advise much, so it's your call.My most conservative, least damaging(and easiest) approach is to just cut out squares on the stickers, and stick them on, without removing the colored plastic square.

A less conservative approach, is: If you can remove the colored plastic square and put it back using the glue dot, maybe you can remove the colored square, put the gold sticker on it, and then put it back on the rubix cube..? That glue dot has to be pretty sticky though for that approach to work.

Please send me some thoughts on what you think, or if anything I said makes sense! :)

Use whatever sticky paper you want, I just picked one at random. You're the artist. :) You can even use gold paint too. Why not try the gold foam stuff as a first try, and see if it works out? If they fall out, you can always try another kind of sticky paper, or another approach.

I hope this helps, and let me know how the pendant & cube is coming along!

Well, for the pendant I went ahead and bought 3 colors of Sculpey in the smaller packs, like in the tutorial, then got an eye pin and had a chain already that I could use. I haven't made it just yet, haven't had a free weekend.

I'll take some pictures of the cube itself with my phone tomorrow, i don't have the thing near me at the moment. But yeah, I had never seen one like it when I first got it. I had debated spraying it with gold Rustoleum that I had leftover from when I made Riley's necklace last year, then coloring the center squares with black paint.

I did find a back up cube, what was apparently a Sudoku-style cube with colored number stickers, so if that falls through I do have a back-up plan.

Just wondering: did you make his bracelets too? How did you go about doing those? I already have a studded one I can use for his right arm, but not sure how to go about doing the square dangles on the left.

Ya know, spraying it might not be so bad of an idea, if you stick tape on the center black square, or paint the black square with something permanent like acrylic or permanent marker.

I'm sure we can both think of something. :) Good backup plan!

I would say, to try making a plush out of the square bracelets. That way, it's much easier to put the bracelet over your wrist, than say, using a wooden block.

I'm going to hopefully give it a try this weekend, if it stops raining long enough for me to go outside and paint.

Hmm..plush bracelets sound interesting, and probably would be a lot more comfortable than a wooden block or something like that.

craftysorceress Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Student Artisan Crafter
Exactly, they're comfortable, and would look just as good. Give the painting a shot whenever you get the chance, and maybe that will solve your glue dot/plastic problem. :)

Also, congrats on the 32k! I was watching it, but I missed the kiriban by like 25 views. Aah well!

It looks gorgeous. Seriously. Looking at your intermediary work, it looks like those pieces coming off, while proved to be a challenge, looked like a blessing in disguise because you could remove all the blue-red-white-orange-etc colors from it, and just get black.

I am humbled that my tutorial helped you out. I will also add a link to your creation on this page.

Okay, I'm almost done with the cube, but this is what it looked like as I was defacing it: [link]

I could fit my nail under the tiles and pry them off, and if that didn't work an old con badge was thin enough to fit under there and work them off. You can see the glue dots left behind by the tiles, but some Goo Gone got rid of them.

And the gold foam actually works well, it's quite sticky and difficult to remove from the plastic.
