Christmas Wreath by Karen Clare

Christmas Wreath by Karen Clare

MDF Wreath shape
Holly leaves and berries
Mini gingerbread man and flourish
Small numbers
Jute ribbon
Glue gun
Acrylic paint, red, brown, green 
White posca pen
Glitter or stickles
Red gem

I used jute ribbon to wind around an mdf wreath shape adding an extra piece to hang and I tied a piece for a bow which attaches to the bottom.
I simply painted the mdf Holly leaves and berries with green and red acrylic paint.
Then I painted the number 25 and flourish.
The mini gingerbread man was painted brown acrylic with a red gem added and some white icing with a white posca pen and glitter.
Before using a glue gun to stick the elements in place I attached some sisal to add to the natural finish and a string bow to the top of the jute hanging piece.

Hello All,

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

Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member

This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member
