starry night



Ten years at sea




This is the Group buy for the next two designs of hand painted wrist rest series - The "Starry Night" and "Ten years at sea".

Inspiring from  Japanese artist Kagaya and  -Your Name (Kimi no Na wa) anime, Starry Night is a unique piece of art that will get you tons of compliments.  Should match with any key set but especially purple theme like Grand Budapest or the famous Violett Cream.

"One day ashore. Ten years at sea. That's a steep price for what's been done."-  said Will Turner,  for the curse that binding him with the Flying Dutch man. Will spends his one day with Elizabeth on an island where they consummate their marriage. Before returning to the Dutchman at sunset, he entrusts the Dead Man's Chest containing his beating heart to her care. The Flying Dutchman disappears from the horizon amid the Green Flash- A sad yet beautiful scenery.
If you pair this one with Nantucket or Nautilus , that will be a perfect match.

I too would like to know if other designs will be available later as I really want the starry night and aurora designs. I like the Forest Green but unfortunately don't have GMK Camping or any sets that would match the design.

Yes, they will be available in next batches. I've an optional question in the form to vote for next run design.
About the finish, these are clear coated and could be use on daily basis without any problem. Mine was used daily for few months and show no sign of wear.

Hi, I'm a maker of this GB. Behind each of my wrist rest is a story of my life or a thing i love.

Forest Green - I really love the moblie game: Alto's Adventure, It remind me the time I travelled alot, seen many diffrent beautiful natural scene.
Samruai World - Westworld season 2 and moblie game Shadow Fighter inspried me.
Harry Potter - A part of my young age.

The starry night and aurora are my first GB in Vietnam, a long story about that.

The starry night - I created it to save my childhood memory with a litte girl who we lost contact for 20 years

The aurora - I painted it when I listened "Forever - Stratovarious". In this time, I miss my first love so much, we were broke up a few years before.
So, I name my night forest with aurora paint was "Polaris", with meaning: How long, how far, I'm alway think about you.
Like the lyric form Forever "I'm still there, everywhere, I'm the dust in the wind, I'm a star, in the Nothern Sky..."

They are only 10 Polaris Wirst Rest. Then, I promised never ever paint the 11th to express my love for her.

So if you want 2 themes, I'm very pleasant draw the new, same color, same theme. But not look like extractly my old wrist rest.

Thanks.

I had read some questions about can the color keep for a longtime

I use 2 types of top coat for my wirst rest suface

1st coat is Vanish gloss to protect my color and make them brighter

2nd coat is wood finish (polyethylene water base), keep my wrist rest form water, sweat vv...

so, if you don't scratch the surface and weekly clean it with cloth and pure water, your wirst rest will not have any problem with color blur

Thanks.

The thickness is: 1.8cm and 4mm with rubber feet 3M, total height: 2.2cm

It's almost up to 2.5cm, but with my design, you still feel comfortable.

I have 4 keeb, 75% layout, aluminum 2.5 and 2 wooden case 3cm, 96%: 2.3cm. My wrist rest are working well with all of them.

Thanks.

Some of easter eggs in groupbuy


1. Starry Night:

- The night sky will sparkle when their surface has light on
- The little girl open the lantern for stars fly to the sky (base on fairy tales)

The song I heard when I draw Starry Night is Fly me to the moon

2. Ten Years At The Sea

- The ship is The Flying Dutchman (base on Pirate of The Caribbean)
- The constellation at the top right is Carina, which has Canopus, one of the brightest stars in the southern hemisphere, the name of Barbossa daughter.

The song I heard when I draw Ten Years at The Sea is One day (OST in Pirates of The Caribbean - At The World End)

Hi Marutks, i got your response. The length of Size S wrist rest is 32cm and should match most of 65% keeb. I could not find the exact length of your zephyr but if you could get that info , please help sending it to me. If it's less than 32 cm then no problem, and I also could make the wrist rest perfectly fit your keeb via a custom size request though :).

I'm so sorry, you can't.

I usually limit the number of products and do not remake them within a year.

This made me able to focus more on the quality of each painting, ensuring my perfection and feelings in each painting.

But, I run GB monthly, but I run GB monthly, and it's usually seasonal or occasional, so you'll have plenty of choices from now until the end of the year. I am very happy if a product of mine comes to you.
