Hello twistypuzzlers,
I have done in recent weeks to finalize the Windmill & Fisher HD Family, adding what may be their offspring:
The WFW HD and the FWF HD, like the others puzzles have shiny plastic and very smooth to the touch, what differentiates them is the change they represent, so the interior was filled with epoxy paste and resin, after which it was usually tiled with my personal techniques;
filling is a study that I am making with new materials to finally abandon the plastic sheeting as a primary technique in the realization of my works, because they are not competitive in today's world and as I think many of you know are too expensive in terms of processing time;
so from now on, it will be very rare for me to present something new using my usual techniques;

12 colors, turns great, only one piece in white body each puzzle (Unique), Weight 145 Gr.

Best regards
Rafael

Thanks to you both;
Today i'm "stickering" the two puzzles, i think in 20 hours of work i will finish both (signature and rounding of the edges included);
The picture gives an idea of will be like, the choice of colors will be based on my previous white body 12 faces.
Best regards
Rafael

Hello everyone I forgot to point out to you something, of course it was understood, below a possible mixing between the two puzzles, the puzzles were designed as FWF and WFW however given the precision with which they were built, you can mix without having any asymmetry , also given the use of polyurethane resin and epoxy grout, lend themselves perfectly to 'assembly and disassembly without breakage and / or problems whatsoever;

so, possible mixing:

Windmill & Fisher cubes HD (photo)
FFW & WWF HDs
FWF & WFW HDs (first photos)

Best regards
Rafael
