In 2014 the first attempt to make the IUOMA-logo with a 3D pen. I plan to produce more, but still am looking for the time to do so.Making these kind of objects is time absorbing since every line is made by hand.

Painted CD’s

2002_1

In the years before and after 2000 I started with a production of painted CD’s. I documented them with albums and a complete Blog that is online at:

http://paintedcds.blogspot.nl/

The goal was to exhibit them, but the place I was hoping/looking for didn’t succeed. Maybe a new chance will come in the future when the CD’s are a unknown object for the new generation…..

Writing letters with a 3D Pen – Ruud Janssen

Experimenting with the 3D pen resulted in an interesting collection of objects. I also like to call it ‘writing letters’ because the objects are letters or even envelopes. To document the findings I also wrote two articles that are formally published. have a look at them to read:
