Sugar Plum Fairy by Bethany Coughlan

I thought I would share this beautiful Nutcracker Bauble with you. I particularly wanted to show it as my daughter Bethany, created it for my Mum as a little, “I love you”, gift, whilst Mum was in hospital. Bethany has cerebral palsy, which causes a tremor in her hands, but she coloured in this gorgeous sugar plum fairy, using polychromos and posca pens without any help!

I thought her colour scheme was beautiful, and my Mum was delighted with it.I think Bethany has done brilliantly (I am biased I know) and I think the baubles are definitely something that can be made by young or old, with or without hand tremors!

Sam sells them in sets of four showing each of the main characters in the Nutcracker story and also as a large single nutcracker plaque, which can be found HERE

Wishing all our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving

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
