It's finally finished!

I had been obsessing over getting all the scratches off and fixing little imperfections, but with the release of the MP Pillowed Hexaminx, I threw in the towel and just stickered the sucker. Honestly I'm glad to be done with it.

Originally I had actually thought of making tiles for it to give it a Meffert's-like look, but there's no way that was going to happen. :lol: So instead I used the original fluorescent sticker material —provided by the most excellent Tony Fisher— which still gives it a nice official look. I always loved the quality and texture of this material. Stickers were hand-cut, not exactly with a stencil but still measured out for uniformity.

For info on the building process, check here.
