Weighted Companion Cube





Introduction: Weighted Companion Cube

By popular demand I made the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal.

Step 1: Materials and Tools


some sort of hardenable or bakeable clay
red paint
white paint
black paint
Silver paint (not necessary, I think it looks better than white though.)


cutting knife or blade

Step 2: Cube Beginning

Make a cube out of the clay.
Use the blade to make a plus on each side.

Step 3: Cube Edges

Make 8 small equilateral triangles.
Push the triangles onto each corner and shape them.

Make 8 small rectangles.
Push them onto the edges between the triangles.

Make 6 small balls of clay.
Squish them and push one into the center of each side of the cube.

Step 4: Paint

Bake the cube if it is a baking clay, let it dry if it is a hardening clay.

If you want the edges to be silver instead of white, spray-paint the entire cube silver. Otherwise paint the edges, corners, and circles white.

Mix the black and white paint to make a dark grey paint.
Paint the low area between the edges and the circle grey.

Mix the red and white paint to make pink paint.
Paint a heart in the center of each circle.

Step 5: Don't Let It Die

Whatever you do, don't let your companion cube die.

    was thinking of using solder for the cube's accents

    The symptoms most commonly associated with Enrichment Center activities are superstition, perceiving inanimate objects as real, and hallucinations. The Enrichment Center would like to remind you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you, and infact, cannot speak.

    oh god no... not in the oven again... i cant live with the guilt...

    It's ironic that you have to bake these... kind of reminds me of...


    Try doing this, if you can! ;-)

    Impossible Cube... or is it.jpg

    Dam, that picture causes me physical as well as mental pain. Being insane (self diagnosed) doesn't help much. Ouch! But if anybody can succeed in making it work in 3 dimensions (or more if you feel it totally necicary) I want to know how. IQ_abyss

    the only ppl who call call themselfs sane are the formally insane
