I have decided to stick with the Eldritch aesthetic for my first project. My plan is to melt aluminum cans into ingots, then cast those to make a nightmare obelisk (but smaller). Precisely what this will look like, I am not yet sure, but with fire, a 3d printer, and some sand, I should be able to reform the aluminum shown below into whatever I envision.
Below is an AI generated image fed the words nightmare obelisk from the Dream image generator website. While the scale of an obelisk is certainly part of it’s impending nature, I will do my best to capture the same intent in a smaller profile (I have only so many cans to upcycle).
