[GB] GMK Lazurite | Order Placed with GMK
« on: Sat, 08 May 2021, 19:26:03 »


GMK LAZURITE
An allusion to High Renaissance art and the value of the pigment ultramarine

GMK Lazurite takes inspiration from the mineral lazurite found in lapis lazuli, processed and turned into a pigment called ultramarine. It was used by High Renaissance painters for the color blue, and was even priced more than the value of gold.

High Renaissance - Novelties Kits 1 and 2 ($60/kit)
The idea is to create a paint frame design for your mechanical keyboards using the novelties, which will act as 'borders' on ortholinears, usual 40% layouts, 60%, 65%, 75%, 80%/TKL, Tsangan, HHKB, WKL, 1800 and full-sized keyboards. (almost all layouts are supported by both novelties kits)


Color Compatibility (PLEASE READ)
More
Both novelties kits 1 and 2 can complement the look of these two configurations:
-Lazurite base kit (blue alphas, white mods) and
-Lazurite base + Calcite alternate alphas (full white set)

At the end of the day, it is your own preference and you can create your own combination with both of these novelties. Enjoy!

High Renaissance (Gold) | Novelties Kit 1

Color: Gold on Ultramarine Blue



High Renaissance (Blue) | Novelties Kit 2

Color: Ultramarine Blue on White

Specifications:
-900mm x 400mm
-microfiber top
-stitched edges
-rubber base

Notes:
-I have partnered Lazurite with a desk mat brand, PATAG that I founded last year
-PATAG is a brand geared towards promoting Filipino culture through our products (desk mats), with a commitment of sharing our profit to the local Filipino indigenous communities where designs are inspired from.
-Lazurite's desk mats are distinct from what we design as a brand. Even so, I have decided, being a majority owner of this venture, that our brand will run the Lazurite deskmats to inspire local artists/designers in pursuing their talents.

Does it look like blue china if you use the blue-on-white alphanumeric keys with the Blue High Renaissance Novelties on a white board?  Any chance you have a picture of that?

Hi there! Because of this question, I realized, I haven't done a number of renders with all white look: Lazurite Base + Calcite alphas + High Renaissance (Blue) novelties.

Take a look. ;)




Thank you for your question!

Good mornoonight! It has been so awesome to see how far you have gone with your first set, Jae! You should be proud of yourself, and give yourself a pat on the back. All the collaborations and all the other things, like the renders of this set on many keyboards, have been amazing to be a witness, and I'm glad that I was able to find this set. Keep up the hard work because you're almost at the finish line. You got this!

Very high effort set with one of the nicest mods sets of 2021

I'm not a fan of the base kit, but the Alt Alpha + Blue High Renaissance is a banger

And holy cow that's a lot of collabs. IMO the number of collabs detracts from the set itself (which is more than enough to stand alone). I counted 30 collabs. Gotta collect 'em all I guess.

Seems this is a GB of a Lazurite theme than the Lazurite keycap set itself

With that said, you can tell the level of effort and love poured into this, and I said this day 1 of seeing your IC

Very high effort set with one of the nicest mods sets of 2021

I'm not a fan of the base kit, but the Alt Alpha + Blue High Renaissance is a banger

And holy cow that's a lot of collabs. IMO the number of collabs detracts from the set itself (which is more than enough to stand alone). I counted 30 collabs. Gotta collect 'em all I guess.

Seems this is a GB of a Lazurite theme than the Lazurite keycap set itself

With that said, you can tell the level of effort and love poured into this, and I said this day 1 of seeing your IC

GLWGB.

Hi loop. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback about Lazurite!

Yes I get a lot of feedback/criticisms (maybe) for having a lot of collaborations. Majority of these collabs (especially artisan keycaps) are fairly new in the hobby and I believe I can be a bridge for them to have another platform to share their amazing craft. Of course it is mutually beneficial for the keyset and the collaborator; and thatís how it should be. By doing this, I was also able to gain a lot of friends in them along the way and get to learn more of the work poured into their craft. :D

Another consideration I had is the frustration of GB participants who buy a keyset and want a themed collaboration artisan with a very slim chance of winning raffle sales. Itís been a very tough project management for me but rest assured I make sure to not miss in promoting every collab in all platforms where Lazurite is uploaded. The design I envisioned was for the community after all and thatís how itís supposed to be.

Iím just happy to get more involved in this hobby and to share my passion with the community. Thanks loop!

This artisan keycap collaboration deserves a highlight. NORK has dedicated his time to encapsulate the inspiration of GMK Lazurite, the gemstone lapis lazuli and the pigment ultramarine.

NORK (Philippines)
Nonekomata - "The Origin of Blue
Pyrite | Calcite | Lazurite
These are the components of Lapis Lazuli, a semi-precious stone that was the source of the highly coveted color during the renaissance period, the Ultramarine Blue...

Featuring the usage of ultramarine pigments, a replication of the randomness of real Lapis Lazuli (thanks nature!), and pieces of history itself. Thatís right, there are actually 2 pieces of the gemstone itself encapsulated inside both ears of the sculpt."

Re: [GB] GMK Lazurite | LAST DAY - all kits will be made
« Reply #35 on: Sat, 05 June 2021, 13:14:18 »
Last day to enter the Group Buy for GMK Lazurite. All kits will be made. Thank you to everyone who has supported GMK Lazurite and my journey in designing my first keyset from the beginning until the end of the GB. This wouldn't be possible without all your help. I am forever grateful for this opportunity!

Lazurite's colors and inspiration is based off lapis lazuli and the pigment ultramarine. The pigment's name came from the phrase ultra marinus which means beyond the sea; and my first keyset will always be the representation of the bond we form while we are in the hobby - a strong one that will stand the test of time even if we are far apart.

Oh! I have no idea what these final numbers are supposed to mean, but approximately how soon should would pre-order for extras become available for order? Just wondering to know how often I should check back here, or the vendor's website??

Final numbers for the keyset kits and accessories' total orders are uploaded together with the number of extras, so that the community know how much would be available to possibly acquire the set. As the designer and GB runner of Lazurite, I'll be posting updates re pre-orders inside the Discord server if in case anyone missed out on updates from different proxies/vendors. Thank you!

So now that that went so well, what are the chances of doing a GB of that gold on blue set that got nixed during the IC phase? That thing was by far the best. I was pretty bummed i had to bow out of this GB when that got cut.
(If it does happen, gold accent keys with blue legends please, especially the ornate corner ones)

Thank you for following this thread brother. :D I'll know once all kits are shipped out. It will depend if there are people who'd also be interested to have that variant of Lazurite once we all see it in person.

You're not the only one interested in that kit. I was planning to buy that gold on blue base with the blue on gold novelty and the 2 got cut out completely.....

Same. I was still going to get in on the GB when they cut that base, but then they cut those novelties i wanted too, and i had to bow out. Such a shame, i was digging those 2 sets quite a bit.  :(
(Don't get me wrong, this set still turned out great, but I all ready have a couple white/blue sets- Striker,  Masterpiece-)

Same situation with the blue on gold novs, the standard base kit will go very well with BOG novelties imo. The set is great with the design, I just don't understand why BOG novelty got cut out....
