Hello Everyone, a sticker variation for you all today; the Holstein Cube.

The Holstein Cube is a sticker variation of the 3x3x3 cube that features two unique cow print patterns; each pattern is spread across three neighbouring faces of the puzzle. The pattern itself makes the puzzle very hard; though only a “Super Cube”, interpreting and visualising the pattern is extremely difficult as the correct orientation or location of the piece is not immediately obvious. The fact that two confusing patterns have to be considered at the same time while solving also adds to the challenge.

The material itself was bought on a roll; it’s similar to vinyl but it’s definitely not like any sticker material I’ve ever come across, though it is very durable. The stickers were cut by hand using a steel rule and a craft knife and measure 15mm, they could have been bigger but this is my preferred sticker size for a 3x3x3. I have plenty of the material available, so if you are interested buying some please send me a PM.

I have found that it works best on puzzles with relatively large pieces as the pattern itself is quite large.

With its little brother
