Stickers are hand cut, from 10 different colors (same color for opposite faces, due to the fact that I only have 15 colors for this 20 sided puzzle) - White, Yellow, Blue, Red, Orange, Green, Pink, Light blue, Purple, Light Green.

I will add some better quality pictures tomorrow.

PS. PM me if your interested in purchasing this puzzle.

PS2. This is probably going to be the last puzzle im going to make for the next few years.

Enjoy!

-Sharon-

Nice! Even though it's not a true proportional Icosahedron, I like the assymetrical-yet-symmetrical geometry of this shape. Also, your building is very clean :D
great work!

Since it has the isosceles triangles, how about isosceles skewb?

Great work BTW, I am sad that there will be no more cool puzzles from you soon :cry:

Good luck in the Army! We will keep you in our thoughts!

Isosceles Skewb sound pretty nice, so this is the new name for now.

If anyone got any better suggestion, please go ahead and say it =)

IcoSharon Skewb is much better. BUT, remember how it should sound.

I-CO-SHA-RONE NOT I-CO-SHAR-ON

Many US members pronounce Sharon as Shar-on and this member pronounces his name Sha-rone. Plus, the non-U.S. pronunciation is much better on the ears.


Chris :D

I didn't know you did hand-mods as well as CAD. Well done!

"Sharon", like "Eitan", is a common Israeli name. It's often tough to convey the correct pronunciation of a name in another language. My name, for example, is pronounced "Eight-on", but most people wouldn't have known that just from reading it.

-Eitan

All Israeli citizens must serve in the military for a certain number of years after they graduate from high school. I imagine there won't be much time for puzzle-making.

I dont think that this shape is well known, your puzzle is the first I see in this shape (excluding mine). Do you know the name of this shape?

I copied this shape from Andreas.

Two years ago he worked with it for his octahinx.
