3d printing

3d Printed Fox Coaster

One more 3d printed idea I’ve been toying with is coasters. It’s been a real challenge to find the right level of details to show well at this size. The 3d aspect actually obscures the image a bit by casting shadows. I’m also playing with different filament colours to add a bit more interest and contrast. I think I’m on the right track with this guy, but there’s definitely more experimenting to be done!

New 3D Printed Design – Fox Planter!

Playing around with modelling and 3d printing some more. This is a fox planter I designed for my husband’s birthday. (He really loves foxes.)


I learned so much with this design! It was very tricking figuring out how to render fur without over-rendering it, which is something I struggle with when painting, too. The inks I used for painting the details also applied a bit patchy, so I’ll try a more wet-on-wet painting style next time or use a fully opaque paint. Despite the flaws, I’m very proud of this piece!

New Planter Design! 3d Printed Rainbow Opossum Planters!

Dipping back into 3d printing, I’m extremely proud of these opossum planters! I used Nomad Sculpt to design them. They’re probably my 5th design in that program, and it’s pretty intuitive! I printed these little guys in rainbow filament, primed the bits I wanted coloured with transparent watercolour ground, and then painted them with India ink. I like how the semi-transparency helps the painted colours feel more integrated and natural.

These two planters will be available at the Capital Art Sale in May!

3D Printed Seal Ornament

This is the first 3d printed design I created myself using this fantastic class by Gesa Pickbrenner on Skillshare.

Of course I had to create a seal ornament haha! I really love how illustrative this type of printing looks. I’m still trying to learn how to print these with a clean face without any little gaps when they’re printed at a smaller size. This piece is experimental and very large. I don’t really like how it looks painted, so I think I’ll stick to more simple, unpainted pieces in this style in the future.
