Crayon Creatures – Children’s drawings printed as 3D objects


Created by Bernat Cuni, Crayon Creatures is a service to turn children’s drawings into figurines, designer objects to decorate your home or office. You send an image, get a sculpture back, printed by Shapeways.

Bernat inflates the drawing like a balloon, defines the contour lines, create a plane where he projects the drawing as a texture, then it is extrudes and finally pressure physics are applied to soften the shape. The figurines are two-sided symmetrical, this means that you see the same from both sides.

The size of the figures is around 10cm / 4 inches (longest measure) and uses sandstone as the material, 3D printed by Shapeways. The objects are intended for decorative purposes only and are not suited to be used as toys or to be given to underage children. The price is €99 + international shipping flat fare €15.
