Golden Ratio Calipers : Belated Update

So everything went a bit mad last November, and I’ve been trying to catch up ever since… which is why I’ve only managed to do two blog posts this entire year.


So… I’m not really into the whole employer/employee thing – so have 7 sub-contractors, fellow micro-businesses… two proper industrial-design guys (Glen and Grant) full time, and 5 local artists/musicians doing assembling etc. It’s that type of neighbourhood – everyone’s kindof over-educated, under-employed. The newly precarious middle-class. Everyone is always swapping things for lemons. They’re a way for people to give each other things without having to feel like a charity case. Everyone has lemons, everyone uses them. They’re like this magical gift/swap-economy debt-canceller.

(Looks out window for a bit)

But anyway – I now have proper professional engineers to tell me what to do

Laser CutterI’ve also acquired another laser-cutter… I thought it was going to be a desktop one, but it’s another free-standing thing that take up about 1.5 cubic metres. I made a wheely stand for it. So far it’s caught fire 3 times.

workshop2There was also a flood two days ago, so we had a huge tidy up, and now it looks like this:

Golden Ratio Microblading CalipersAnd it’s all for these: Golden Ratio Microblading Calipers

It’s taken me completely by surprise… a year ago I didn’t even know what microblading was… now there are loads of videos on youtube using my actual calipers. I’ve been trying to get it together to make a proper video for years now – and now about 20 people have beaten me to it.

Anyway… hopefully I’ll be able to keep things a bit more up to date from now on :)

Until tomorrow…

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!"

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom.…
