Easter Pour

Here are the pour paintings, a.k.a. fluid paintings, I did on Easter.  I used “Easter” colors:  Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, Yellow, and white.  I do not know which one is my favorite.

I thinking this one would make a beautiful background. Maybe some trees. Or, I may just leave it along.

All the painting are 4″ x 4″.

Luke 23:44

This is not technically a pour painting.  It is a painting I dip into the paint after I did a pour on other canvas.  It has been curing while I been deciding what to paint on the top.  Probably because it is the Easter season, I had this idea.

I originally was only going to paint the crosses in black, but a dark gray and chocolate brown was sitting right next to the black.  Two feet over, the gray-blue was sitting there.  I looked at them and knew that would work.

3D Printing – The Easter Egg

Yesterday, I designed an Easter Egg using Tinkercad.  Today, I printed the Easter Egg.  Creating the Egg in Tinkercad is easy.  They have a egg object.  Hollowing out the egg is easy; copy egg, reduce the size, make it a hole, align the solid egg with the hole egg, and group.

Making the two egg halves with the crack was more complicated than making the chick.  The chick is two circles for the body, two circles for the eyes, two flatten and stretched trapezoid for the wings, the heart shape for the head, and Tinkercad’s  chicken foot object for the feet.

To see how I created the crack in the egg, check it out here.  Note:  I am working on other cool chicks, so the design my change.

I probably could have made the chicken bigger, maybe I will.

The egg was printed on Ultimaker 2+ printer.  I read that beta version of the Cura Software allows more control over supports.  Yay!
