SamanthaK Cogs Mixed Media MDF – 20 pack
SamanthaK 3D MDF Alarm Clock Pack
Clockface from SamanthaK Time Embellishment Pack
Black Gesso
White Gold Gilding Wax
White Gesso
3D Matte Gel Medium
Chipboard rectangle measuring 5” x 3”

Thinly paint all of the clock body in black and the two clock faces in white. Once dry assemble the clock including the large clock face.
Use a black pen to make the numbers on both clock faces stand out.
Use your fingers to add random smears of texture paste over the entire clock (except the faces) and allow to dry thoroughly.
Paint all of the cogs black back and front and when dry stick around the clock face using 3D matte gel. Dry overnight.

Gently massage the white gold gilding wax over the entire clock body and buff when finished.
Add the hands to the small clock face using a brad and stick to the middle of the large clock face using 3D matte gel.
Because the front of the clock is now front heavy I scored a piece of chipboard and added it to the back of the clock as a stand.
TIP: You can use a hot glue gun to add your elements as well as 3d matte medium. The 3d matte medium makes a much stronger and lasting bond.

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
