Ideation Process

Initial Mock-ups

These are rapid prototypes of my initial ideas on Pura.

1. Focused on brush maintenance 

Looked for an easy way to maintain brush quality

2. Easy way to filer the water

Built filter models within brush tools based on ideation sketches

3. Started to use different materials

Found magnet attachment to be the most appropriate for keeping brush from getting damaged

Proof of Concept

Testing chemicals that can separate pigments from paint water. The test was successful and water was safely filtered and cleaned from the toxic pigments.

1. Prepare materials

Aluminum Sulfate and Hydrated Lime

2. Add the ingredients

Apply to the used paint water

3. Whisk it

You'll see pigments solidify

4. Filter it

Have another bucket and pour into it with any "coffee filter" on.

5. Already solidified

At this stage, pigments got solidified and only clean water comes out

Terrazzo Pattern

Terrazzo pattern is made by using recycled timber or plastic as well as marble. This unique pattern is sustainably-minded and highly decorative.
