About

The "Oz Friends Mini-busts" project is my way of sharing with you my love for both the old and the new, the classical and the hi-tech! 3D printing is becoming greatly advanced in areas like product prototyping and medical applications. They've even created large scale printers that work with cement to literally PRINT buildings, but I want to use 3D printing to bring you things on a much more personal level with great characters and story telling. I want to begin with those classic, iconic characters that have been a part of our lives for generations, the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Tinman from the Wizard of Oz!

The funds from this kickstarter will go towards the printing, molding, and casting of the Oz Friends Mini-busts, reward thank you cards, and all related packaging and shipping. 

The Oz Friends Mini-busts stand roughly 6 inches tall and will be produced in 2 limited edition runs of 300 sets. The first set will be cast in "off white" polymer resin and will be available as individual piece rewards. The second set will be cast in stone gypsum and will be available as the complete set reward. The individual piece rewards are set at different prices per character based on volume of materials needed as well as complexity of assembly. For example the Tinman will be cast in 3 parts plus the base and therefore require more work to complete. 

Thank you so much for helping to make this project a success!

Risks and challenges

Some of the specific challenges involved in the project center around the proper molding and casting of some of the finer details, on the Tinman in particular. The Tinman will be printed in 3 parts; Head and neck, collar and tie, and torso. This should allow for clean casting and assembly. If neccesary, minor design modification may be required, which would be reported on project updates.
