The other week I made a start on some gargoyle-esque designs with the 3D printer however on a recent search through the interweb-net-thing I came across a cool multi-part Tatar ornament that I just had to print and work onto a canvas.
For a while, the 3D printer has been unloved, but I have recently set it up again in order to start making for things for the new home.
In this post, I will share with you a quick decorative technique that I tried out.Read More »
A little bit of an experiment this week.
I have been seeing a fair bit of pebble painting going on around the internet so I thought that I could see what I could do with that concept in conjunction with my CoLiDo 3D Compact printer.
Read on to see how it all turned out.

Hallo you. Just a brief one for this week’s 3D Thursday to let you know that I now have an account over on My Mini Factory where I will be uploading some of my 3D designs for you to make use of.
On this website, you can grab the files free and feel safe in the knowledge that they have been 3D print tested, twice!Read More »
In a bid to expand my 3D design and printing capabilities I have this week been learning a new piece of software and thought that it would be nice to share this journey with you.Read More »

Hallo you. Just wanted to pop onto the blog and let you know that I am currently wending my way down to Peterborough for a couple of brief appearances on Create and Craft TV tomorrow.
Both shows will be on Create and Craft TV tomorrow, Sunday 18th February 2018.
The first one, at 10am, features the GoPress & Foil range of goodies.
Not heard of this yet? Here are a few blogs posts from the archive where I show you what it’s all about.
- The GoPress And Hotfoil System
- GoPress And Foil – 17 Creative Techniques With The GoPress And Foil System
- GoPress And Foil Techniques Using Angelina Fusible Film And Fibres
The second will be at midday and will feature the CoLiDo 3D printer.
I have been using this for some time now and have created quite a catalogue of blog posts. Here is a selection in case you missed any.
- 3D Thursday – A Face Fit For A Canvas
- 3D Thursday – Addressing An Angel
- 3D Thursday – An Idea Hatches!
You can, of course, watch the shows live in the UK via Sky 674, Freeview 23, Virgin 748, Freesat 813, Apple TV & Amazon Fire. Some shows may also be shown live in the US via Dish 221 & Roku.
Other regions of the world may be able to watch and shop via the live stream on Create and Craft TV. Depends on where you are I guess.
Anyhoo, hope you can join me for one, or other, or both?
Bye for now.
A while ago I mentioned that you could convert any of your SVG files into 3D printable formats that you could then print on a CoLiDo 3D Compact printer.
This blog post and video will explain how!Read More »

Sadly I didn’t have time to finish the box mentioned in last week’s post, however, I have been able to put together a short video to show you how to create a cube box, onto which you could weld a decorative 3D design, using Microsoft 3D Builder.Read More »
