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……
( 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..
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)
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)
This site has been the kernel for many things to begin to manifest. Admittedly not many of them made it to the market, but at the very least they left the domain of imagination.
The original theme was more about connection and union of ideals. Or at least the acknowledgement of differences, and not as anything new!
On attempting to bring some colour into the Braille condition. Led to situation when another printing job I raised was cancelled, at my request I might add. On the basis of what thought I uploaded was as is.
That was not the case. What I was informed was one file looked like it was grey. Which if I am honest ironically makes more sense. I am yet to find out which one it was, But it was printable I must state.
My perspective was on one giving to another, However who would notice or recognise the difference and who could read it?( I am no expert either!!!)
Due to certain complications the image relating to this topic I am speaking of is unusable. But all that is different from this image is that the (Braille) is the colour of the lips, but has no lips!! Plus the orientation automatically changed!!
Keep posted for advances one way or another for better or worse.
Update! I found out which one it was and I really should have remembered but somehow I must have done without realising No need to explain this one any further,
