Winter Scene by Lynda Hall
Well, there’s no denying Christmas is on the horizon now, so I have been trying to get myself in the mood with some festive crafting. I love the teeny houses from Samantha K so have used them to create a little winter scene to sit on my shelf at home.
I used a log slice as my base, and painted it white before adding white Metal FX paste all over it with a spatula. It reminded me of how we used to do spiky icing on Christmas cakes as kids in years gone by! I placed the tree and houses in it ( with fluffy stuff on the roof for more dimension) . No adhesive needed as the paste will hold them firm. To add some more texture and sparkle I sprinkled textures and glitter on too and gently pressed it down before adding a little reindeer to finish it off.
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
