tired-and-delusional asked: I think your art is amazing and I cant imagine how hard it is to make it like do you grow the crystals or something? I made rock candy once and it actually made me want to die it was ridiculous

Ahh Thank you! :D I really appreciate it! I do grow all the crystals myself directly on the surfaces of objects.  I experiment with a lot of different chemical combinations and dyes but the biggest factors for being successful are temperature and humidity, which, I definitely don’t have down to a science.  There is A LOT of trial and error in it, and a lot of letting nature do its thing. :D
