Jack Latteman (Cascadia Artpost, USA) sent me this wonderful rubberstamp that I am now testing on enveloppes that will go out this month. As you can see it looks lovely!
Working with the 3D pen is addictive. You can create actual objects, and that is much different as to drawing. I don’t need samples, I just like to create objects, and it is always currious do discover what comes out. The techniques I know now make it easy to make any object. Also the in-between are fun to watch. I made a few photos of the new work I am doing in the early stages. You can see how the structures develope:
I have these lovely sets of wordstamps in the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. Ocasionally I use them to play with on my outgoing mail-art. The stamps are cheap, and self-inkting. Each set has 3 words. They were on sale so I bought a few years ago. Still enjoy them every time I use them.

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……
This weekend I worked on another object with the MyRiwell 3D pen. The objects are becoming larger and are fit for a future exhibition. I have developed the technique now to make the larger objects and that works out just fine. Slowly a set of objects is created. The skelet is made of ABS plastics and the structures onto the body are like layers of paint that form a tight structure. That way the objects are light and yet very stable and you can hold them without breaking.
I have made a few more photos for you so you can see more sides of the object. The rears are large, and the figure is wearing a green cap. Have to think of the title yet, and will soon decide on wether the object is finished or not. Because these objects take a lot of time and materials I already ordered a few more kilo’s of ABS plastics. This time a different colourset, so that will bring some more surprises for future objects. Please feel free in commenting what you think of the results.

I decided to send her two envelopes of my acrylics series.
