About the edition
***3D Printing is being done by Khrysalis Studios – Art by Rayvin Maddockc using the same technology she used to produce 500 micronaut prints. These are being heat and UV cured for added strength and while still a tiny detailed work of art, is a lot more forgiving than many 3d prints I’ve had (and I’ve been cleaning them in various sizes and all kinds of printing materials for my editions since 2005!).
These 3D Printed castings have NO SEAMS and very few little sprue-like bumps from printing supports that sand away extremely easy. They are fragile like any tiny resins or pewters. Know too they do not bend with heat. They clean up quite quickly and require MUCH less primer. Some faint printing lines can be seen but are part of the process and typically buff out with a soft nail buffing sponge or even disappear with initial layers of primer.
I opted for this media due to the ease in prepping and ability to give customers details much closer to the original large sculptures as much as could be possible in this tiny scale!
This is fine art, not a toy. Fragile & Not suitable for small children.
