LOL. That's probably the least aesthetically-pleasing puzzle I've ever seen, but in a good way...somehow. :lol:

But really, I meant that as a compliment. It's so messy, it's great! :P

That looks confusing. :? I've got to admit though, I don't like it that much. :(

Nice to see some artistic flair in the stickering (stickering used VERY loosely). I like it. Good job :)

I must say I really love this idea. I am not sure a bout the colorfull side. Just one color on each side would be better I think. But I had a cube stickered with artfull 3D pictures once, and I liked it a lot.
This splattered cube looks great to me. A bit more color would be good though. And only one color per side. :D

Nice idea.
If you would splatter all colors over the entire cube, it would be a real difficult but interesting solve!

It's a awesome idea, but I think it would look better of you got more paint over the surface.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

My original idea was to have only one color per face in the normal color scheme. I also simply wanted to be able to print the paint splatters off of my computer. It was actually quite hard for me to find any good pictures that were free to use. The pictures I used were (in my opinion) the best looking ones for the idea.

I could not found an orange paint splatter that I liked at all, so i stickered one side with the multicolor pattern.

I don't plan on changing this one at all, it actually looks quite nice in person and I am very happy with it.

I certainly encourage anyone to try this as well. I'd like to see one with actual paint splatter on it. :D
