We introduce a novel system and technique for materialising the deformable shapes of sound-resonance on 3D objects. This technical framework presents a novel approach using a series of simple processes to manage complex object transformations that can be used in virtual, 3D modelling and augmented reality interaction. Our method involves: • First step is on materialising sound resonance images by using a suitable tool such as the Chladni plate software for generating sound resonance shape maps which can then be used in bump and displacement mapping. • Next we experimentally explore ways of using volumetric deformable shape maps to blend these intricate sound resonance patterns in virtual pottery applications. • We then extend the method to transform the resulting complex 3D shape models from the above steps for rapid prototyping using appropriate pre-print tools by remeshing and physics manipulations. • The result is then 3D printable object forms, with highquality sound texture examples overlayed and blended, that changes the form of underlying 3D objects. We demonstrate our method using off-the-shelf tools
