Zen Pond IV Ė Godís creation artisan keycaps

https://www.jellykey.com/artisan-keycaps/zen-pond-iv







Similar to the previous collections of Zen Pond, we made the Kois in very small size. Donít be concerned by this tiny scale because you can still recognize very lively details inside the keycaps just under the size of a pinkie tip. In particular, the Koi fins are especially highlighted on their bodies to make it most visible and animated regardless of their size.

A whole new way to Koi making

In Zen Pond 4 we choose a completely new production technique that has never been used before at Jelly Key to take another step in innovating this unique collection. The technique creates 3 parallel color rays, resulting in a high and realistic contrast on the background. This particularly helps highlight the beautiful Koi fish.

The Kois are then made with different depth levels to create special Eden effects. This step takes a lot of time to do, especially when it comes to working with Koi fish as they are placed on various layers of clear resin. The amount of time and efforts is much more than other Zen Pond collections but it is very rewarding because we can produce an another amazing collection of Godís creation.

Coloring the Kois Ė tough work! Moving on to color and effect formation, again, it takes the Pouring Art of mixing alcohol ink with resin to produce this magical series. It conveys abstract and random aspects of expression. The reaction of alcohol ink in resin brings a hypothetical effect occasionally used in interior design for some specific purposes. Its elegant fluids play a crucial role in raising the power of imagination. In the collection, we apply 3 to 5 layers of paint for each keycap so the colors can have a certain thickness and be clearer to our eyes. More importantly, these color tones are entirely based on real Koi fish to increase their authenticity.

This is also the hardest thing we faced during the production of Zen Pond IV. Itís very challenging to paint the fishes and keep them spirited as much as possible. Not to mention that we also made Cherry, SA and OEM profiles for all keycaps in the collection, which induced another difficulty in detail layout as the space in this profile is typically short.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

After all the crucial details have been done. It takes another 7 hours to ‪‎polish‬ and 9 more to finally finish before packed and stored.
So, everytime you wear it, you can be ‪#‎proud‬ that your ‪‎Jelly Key‬ (Gem version) is a 71-hour-of hard work and ‪#‎passion‬. It is ‪#unique‬, and it is ‪‎specially‬ made for you .
