just realised that

I have only been able to do this shot twice with same material. Once displayed on this site but is now lost within blog posts. It was in wax before the wicks. Some of them are missing too but that was because they were used:-)

They did not have a hoop either. The slightly rough look if the top one is, primer, glue, paint, hot gun and more! You may notice the little circle step is missing too,  It never had one! This below shot was only the second time and it has far less this time. but it was triangular

just noticed a mistake I top pic  it was cardboard, 3D print, casts and wax that  was me trying to show the two tessellated views of Hexatrigon with  regular shapes. It also shows my ignorance nothing old school about cardboard.  However that was because I wanted to highlight  something even back then! The last time I cut cardboard like that was school. I am making excuses……

Seeing- is it believing?


( Image was the different views of food safe rows done way before production when i thought injection moulding reproduction was a viable option. Simple product would have been an icetray) it did perform as such but was economically speaking unpractical..


Can you spot the difference?

Although it might be the only model I will not see I will show how the journey and the speculation of previous post has manifested. I will show this in pictures. Both created for their respective process methods. One sls, shown previously on this site. And one for ultimately casting. Both of them if manufactured are as real as the other from my perspective. Only difference is alterations best suited for manufacture, maybe a title or name of the file. Both are with the respective manufacturers. I wonder if that is how it was supposed to be in the long run. I definitely didn’t plan it.  I hope to manufacture it in time. And it ended with no bad will.

As of today

My efforts bore no fruit. From  one perspective. My shape is not the only thing hanging on a ……:

I suppose this is an other one.

If the place I mailed for a quote today was around or I knew of them a  couple years ago maybe things would have been different!!

Enablemanufacturing ( that is a company)


On this site I have danced a little less  of a political dance but the news of the royals leaving the Uk are in some what mirrored with where I may want to set one of my design marks I did at first hope for more from it. Didn’t expect that ignorance to reach so far in the 21st Century. In  family I suppose whatever happens they still relate.

in more keeping with where the journey led I found out about a celebrated day in the US that I found  out about. For the last time a full signal and compromised data.

This post had  a different ending but could not be saved???

It concerned metal advances in Colorado which was how I found out about the day .

Full circle it seems

I recently pressed custom red lips on a printed model which came out well. I placed it on a press which I did right at the beginning of my material journey. It was on carbon fibre it was bought online. It was was a heart in fact it had several. which due to the background came of in regards the image left on paper but was very difficult to see. If I remember correctly it may have been one of the last times I went to see the printers. Which now has become a coffee shop. The material was encased in resin which made it possible. You might be able to pick it out of the background. Other images may be found of the original on trojanthinking.wordpress.com

just to think of how this image came into being crosses not only years of experience,  theory, practice, language, meaning. materials and borders.

It was less than a day old. (Image that is)

This got what could be directed from the  can.

Sods law and the spray tip of a can varnish that has another import tax story. Says it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

This time it was used after the image press rather than before ( experience from working with the ceramic tiles)

Screenshot form Techsil Uk where I sourced a replacement and hopefully a safeguard to not have the same thing happen again.


sublimation as art?

These are not really art, and the tile is lost but it is making the most out of things gone wrong.  Which you could call art if you want. I quite like the first heart and the last face it has what screen printing could not offer me without much trouble which is the variation of red in the heart that resembled the photograph from which it was based.  I will at some stage prepare a proper 3d print to take the One Luv heart and hope for better. As can be seen on other pages the face came off well in the end, so should the rest if they can fit. Similar position to the badge in that respect, funny Just to add the substrate for the  tile was also the coating a lesson gained through experience. The images on 3d prints have no substrate!. Just the process of sublimation via heat.


A very competent payment system has been finally been in place for some time now. Due to several attempts to put in place a working system that worked for me on this platform, over the last 3+ years this one worked.

Unfortunately this has not made a blind bit of difference in regards to purchases.

I managed to amend the payment method not because it was not valid more because after speaking with a member of my business bank and finding what I experienced since the very first grey print was not put into any doubt. The fact that this site started with some lips its a shame that after all this time figuratively speaking I was on the same page. Too little too late? it might be a one off, well that was the subscription anyway and auto renew is now off.

In addition to seeking clarification on whether my braille model was readable at a eye clinic I was referred to the library.  I think i may have to call it a day. Printing is not like it just to be for me anyway.

Then I received a missed call after the bank call the phone did not ring yet on returning the missed call my number was verified was the message, with what/whom?


Not to mention malicious login attempts on this very site over the lifetime of its online presence . See Updated on trojanthinking.wordpress.com

I think the figure has risen since I took that screenshot over the weekend! by 200 no less, maybe something is working after all!
