So I came up with this. I've made many photo stands before, but never thought of making it Minecraft themed.
I picked two blocks: the grass block, because it's the symbol of Minecraft, and the diamond block, because it's my cousin's favorite Minecraft block, and I think it just generally looks awesome.
Step 1: Supplies
- Glossy varnish
- Acrylic paint (white, black, blue, light green, dark green, brown)
- Thick flexible aluminum wire
- Modeling clay (I used the type that dries, and doesn't have to be burned)
- Craft knife
- Fine permanent marker
- Paint brushes
- Needle noes pliers
- "Cut and Paste Sticker Pad" - some sort of foil that you can cut out and stick onto the cube. Regular masking tape should work just as well.
Step 2: Modeling the block
Then, get a length of wire long enough for the stand, and poke it through the block. To stop it from sliding back out, bend it a bit and press it into the clay.
