    So I sacrificed one of the Rubik's Cubes I had laying around. I had always wanted to turn one into a mystic puzzle and I am pretty happy with the result.

    It is simple enough that my fiance could solve it (she can't solve a Rubik's Cube). It isn't an instant solve for someone that knows Rubik's Cubes ether.


    I peeled off all the stickers.

    Used hot glue to attached some sides to each other which makes the cube much easier to solve.

    Using my hot glue gun i coated and texturized all the surfaces.

    Next I cut craft foam and once again using hot glue attached the foam to the surface of the cube.

    I painted the entire piece in a flat black.

    Then I dry brushed metallic gold onto the cube.

    Finally I used some neon paints I had picked up at wallmart to accent the details. The neon paint glows in the dark so this prop may pop up late at night or underground :p

    Nice! I admit, I was already frustrated when you said it was based on the Rubik's Cube. Only way I can solve those is by popping them apart or peeling the stickers. ;)

    This looks amazing though!

    That's an awesome idea. It looks really good. I'll have to take a look at it when I get the chance. Going to esker again this year?

    Only if the stars align correctly just had a new kid so being able to disappear for a weekend is increasingly difficult.

    Sweet! Thanks for sharing. Now I will be keeping my eyes out for Rubik's Cubes at the thrift stores...
