The legend of Koi Fish
Legend has it that once in a distant mountain, there was a magnificent waterfall dropping from a towering cliff. Imposingly standing on a mountain peak is a gate to heaven.
Swimming upstream against the torrent is an impossible mission that no fish can complete. After a long time of waiting, a marvelous, unexpected thing is witnessed: a strong Koi fish surged forward, surpassed the torrent, passed through the gates, and became a dragon.
After the victory, because of the one successful and precious carp and its ability to swim upstream, the Koi fish now represents courage, luck, victory, great and benevolent, magical power. It is also a symbol of fortune, luck, and success.
Our Koi resin keycap comes in a variety of colors with sizes from 1U to 6.25U. Each Koi keycap will have its own unique and distinct fluid effect, so the only common thing they share is the color option. No single keycap will bear a similar look to any other ones with their signature color ray imprint.
The process of making a resin keycap is complicated, but we enjoy it….
We produce the Koi fish in these mechanical keyboard artisan keycaps by casting them through shaped molds. We do not have them easily printed in 3D and just like that, the details of the Koi resin keycap come straight out of a machine. Everything is done by the hands of our artisans, preparing the molds, pouring resin, and coloring the details.
Ultimately, this painting step is hands down one of the hardest things we faced during the production of Hirosart. Molds in the collection are very small, so it’s very challenging to paint the details and keep them spirited as much as possible. We had to apply 3 – 5 layers of paint for each keycap so the colors can have a certain thickness and be clearer to our eyes. We hope you can wait patiently to receive our keycaps!
Made from durable resin hand-painted in eye-popping colors by our artisans, each little toad is painted by hand to ensure it lives up to our high standards. This will obviously add some more inspiration to your work corner and keep you more creative to do what you love and love what you do.
