3D Printing, Copper and Charred Wood

I seem to be plating anything that doesn’t move. Really excited about the potential of 3D printing. But it does require tenacity, patiences and a sense of adventure! It is another one of those technologies where the manufacturers are expecting the general public to do their R&D for them. It is certainly being overhyped and is certainly not ready for the high street market. The elements that make up Memmento Mori took a total of eight hours to print, three hour of drawing in 3D software and 36 hours plating. Work time and concept should probably carry a price tag of £1500.00. That makes the £400.00 I’ve put on it in the Wrexham Open a bargain basement price.
