I have put this under the Craft Talk heading as it seems most appropriate:
I am slowly learning 3d sculpting and rendering techniques. I should to have some additive manufactured items (3D printed) ready in the next few weeks. These are to be made ready for casting and to experiment and likely sell when further embellished.
In using the technology I am using similar techniques to those I use when working with pen and paper, clay and putty.
My question is partly rhetorical. The essence of skills technique and a certain degree of application come from craft. Every mark is mine. material and substrate positioning is a direct result of my input. Success or failure is mine alone.
Not handmade but definitely coming from me, an extension of me if you will.
Would something manufactured with these techniques be ‘Folksy’? That is what I am pondering at the minute.
