This is not a typical home-related project that I usually post, but I just had to share this amazing labour of love a friend of mine did for her boyfriend!
Her name is Al. She’s soft-spoken, but has a wickedly hilarious sense of humour, and is artistic in a way that I could only dream of.
Her boyfriend happens to be a huge Settlers of Catan fan, so like any thoughtful girlfriend, she decided to make him a 3D version of the game that only took over 80 hours to make (boyfriend, you’ve got yourself a keeper!
Here is how she described the process:
The first thing I did was rolling out the Fimo microwavable clay (rather than the regular stuff which would be too heavy, takes 45 minutes to bake in the oven, and releases toxic fumes). I used two CD covers and a rolling pin so each tile would be the same thickness.
