Autumnal Pumpkin Clock by Karen Clare
Samantha K MDF Pumpkin Base, witches brooms and numbers
Gesso (white and black)
Orange and Gold Acrylic paint
I turned this large pumpkin plaque into a bright and seasonal clock.
White gesso on the large pumpkin base allows the colours added on top to be nice and vibrant.
The shades of orange were applied using a similar technique to dry brushing but achieved with a scourer instead.
The numbers were painted with black gesso for a matte finish ( The same for the broomsticks and some more dry brushing technique),
I added sand texture and paint to the smaller pumpkins and a mixture of sand and glitter with gold paint to the filigree pumpkin.
A fun seasonal clock which celebrates both Halloween and Autumn!
I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.
These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.
If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.
I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)
I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)
Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j1IcVp
Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member https://amzn.to/2STfono
This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j3o8lEWhy not sign up for our newsletter?
