Tucson’s Xerocraft is having a fundraiser, and they’re having fun raising the funds.
Their Indiegogo site is offering some mighty unusual gifts in exchange for donations:
- a medallion with special optical properties, and…
- a statue of a guy whose butt has dropped off.
In direct sunlight, the 4 inch diameter medallions look like old doubloons hauled up from a sunken pirate ship. The plaster-like castings have been faux-painted to resemble blackened, oxidized metal—each emblazoned with Xerocraft’s x-shaped logo, and the Latin inscription, Facite Vestra Artificium (“Get your craft on”).
But if you look at the medallions under other types of lighting—halogen reflectors, for example—colorful apparitions begin shimmering, gleaming, and sparkling across their unexpectedly shiny surfaces.
