3D pen : New work in progress – by Ruud Janssen – December 2016

2016-12-03-10-07-58

I am currently working on a new object with the 3D pen from MyRiwell. It is again a larger object, so these take some time. I am using two new colours now. Perl-white and gold. Gives a special effect with the object for sure. Will make some good photos’s later too when it is finished and will get a name. Probaly the objects will be exhibited somewhere soon……

Bewaren

And suddenly he has an ear….

The latest object I made with a 3D pen was tittled ‘Don’t loose your head’. One more addition in finishing this artwork was adding an ear. For now it is the largest object I made with a 3d PEN so far. I have put in beside the last one on one photo and I see the ew object is more then 40 cm high.

So, an object fit for an exhibition one of these days. Will let you know when that happens. I have discoverd nos a technique that works quite well with this specific 3D pen from Myriwell, and the ABS plastic (filiament) becomes strong enough to form larger objects that can be touched without breaking.

So drawing with a 3D pen and making a 3D object with it has become reality. You only need a lot of practice and patience. The object you see here took two days of work, and about 8 hours working time. You can’t concentrate the whole time, so you need a break now and then. But as you see, you can make it work, and the forms are what you want them to be.

Beside the larger object you also see the previous one and some of the IUOMA logo’s I created.

Video 3D Pen object by Ruud Janssen

New object made with the 3D pen on 7 till 9 October 2016. I used 4 colors ABS plastics to create this larger object. A video is made to show how it looks from different angles. It is an abstract work that is still in progress. So after adding some minor details it will be ready and will get a title too. Not sure yet.

New cow rubberstamp from Helleen de Vaan – Netherlands

2016-09-01 15.21.00 2016-09-01 15.21.14 2016-09-01 15.21.22 2016-09-02 12.27.23 2016-09-02 12.27.27

In the summer I was abroad for a few weeks, and when I returned I found some very nice pieces of mail-art at the P.O. Box. Two of them came from Heleen de Vaan (Netherlands). One of them contained an original new COW rubberstamp that Heleen has designed and made rubberstamps out. One for herself, and (lucky me) one for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. I already printed the stamp a few times, and it looks wonderful. The names this time typically connected to Heleen’s network, and that is what the COW stamp is all about. Will use it with pleasure and will see how i can come up with another surprise for Heleen in return.
