Faberge Egg

This is my most ambitious 3D print yet! The chick and veins were printed and then set in a mold with clear epoxy resin to create a play on the logo of Psyop. No post effects were added to the photos to make them look dreamy, the imperfections in the way I poured the epoxy is what makes the spooky swirls in the egg. The bubbles along the veins was a reaction with the resin and spray paint. Practical stuff is cool!

The epoxy resin has an IOR of 1.56 so I had to warp the final bird model so that the resin would not distort inside the egg in a way I didn't like. I ended up simulating the IOR with arnold and it turns out that the shape of the lattice I made resembled an hour glass shape like the inverse shape of the egg.
