But Please Don't Smash This Pot

While I love Zelda, I do think it is curious how it encourages breaking and entering. Why is there always money in the pots in people's homes? Why do those people not care if you come in, break their pots, and take all their money?

Still, when I decided I wanted to edge a design on the side of the jar I use to hold my laundry quarters, a Zelda pot naturally came to mind.



I used Armor Etch to scratch in the design, following this method, which I heartily recommend over the contact paper method described on the package. In progress:



And in action:

That is so cool! Very creative and a really fun idea!

Some of the residents of caves in the original Zelda charge you for breaking in.

Interesting. I think there were some folks in Wind Waker who were indignant about the pot breaking as well.
