Made a keychain from the photoshopped art.
If anyone has some up close pics of the other stuff I needz that would be great! I've love to get some more going.

Ps, that's the only paint I had, so... that's what it got

I could take some photos of mine but I'm not sure they'd be any better than yours. Advice?

Look forward to it! I'll get these images photoshopped and hopefully get some good stickers /keychains made.

Anyone with a 3d printer can print these, I'll share the files on thingiverse and link it when they're done.

ALRIGHTY! They're all done. Please visit the link above for some 3d printed cool custom TENGAI Keychains! Enjoy!

PS If anyone knows a good way of printing decals, I couldn't find one on the net. The minimum quantities are ridiculous and I don't need 100's lol.

For printing decals, there are a few approaches I could think of. One challenge (and I don't know exactly how you'd overcome it) would be getting a white underlay under the colored ink. It's probably a simple enough matter to print on clear film, laminate that (to seal the ink) and lay the resulting sticker down. But if you don't have a solid base of white behind the ink, the color of the underlying plastic will influence the colors you've printed. You might be able to do it in two layers, but that sounds unwieldy.

It looks like the originals are pink ink on blue vinyl tho, right? You could use screenprinting. Just one screen and a bit of setup. But it would set you back probably over $100, at the cheapest.

You could also try using spraypaint and a stencil to "print" directly onto blue vinyl and create your sticker. You'd use a layer of low-tack (repositionable) vinyl (or similar) as a stencil overtop of your blue vinyl. In the stencil layer you would cut the letters out, then use transfer film to stick it down on the blue vinyl. Hit this with pink spraypaint, let it dry, peel the stencil layer up and cut the final shape (around the letters you've created) out of the blue vinyl. If it were me, this is the route I'd go.
