MiniMakerFaire Toronto


We had an absolute blast at MMF-TO!

We handed out approximately 850 laser cut acrylic moustaches for kids and adults alike to colour up and make uniquely their own.

We’ve got some good pictures kicking around, but in the meantime, here’s an awesome video that TVO put together.

Big thanks to Richard for the endless laser cutting, Dave for bringing the cool toys, and Amelia for her 16+ hours teaching little kids to colour moustaches.

Laser cut thinkhaus keychains! I put all my keychain know-how into designing them:

  • Etching and cutting!
  • Double-sided content!
  • Stick font text for surplus legibility! (used CamBam fonts)
  • Motivation slogan “Be excellent to each other” on front, thinkhaus url on reverse!
  • Double split-ring action for increased doesn’t-break-in-your-pocketness!

We’ll be bringing them out to events like art crawl and software hamilton, plus handing them out to guests who stop by on open house nights (Tuesday starting at 7PM) Come by and grab one!

Filling laser etched acrylic: wax vs polymer clay

I made some business card holders for think|haus a few weeks ago. They turned out pretty well, but there was one problem: the etching isn’t really legible from any reasonable distance. I clearly needed to paint/fill the etching with something. I tried two different methods: wax crayon and polymer clay. Photos below the cut. Read the rest of this entry »
