New work with 3D pen in progress

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:

Word Rubberstamps in the TAM-Archive

2016-12-03-12-11-15

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.

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……

New object with 3D pen – November 2016

2016-11-27-12-54-00

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.

And suddenly he has an ear….

2016-11-20-19-36-52

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.
