    I hope everything goes alright this afternoon at the hospital.

    Martin, That's what I thought, but it's not quite as easy as that. No doubt I'll achieve some sort of result in due course, but much of the rest of today will be spent in the hospital and I may not feel up to it when I get home tonight, or I might work on my current boat project instead.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Nerys,
    With your skills with the clay i would imagine that as long as you can make a large blob with the 3D pen you could shape it with a hot soldering iron until you get what you want.

    I realised that this was a completely new thing I was trying and didn't expect to do anything sensible on a first effort. I am experienced in general modelling with polymer clay, in fact it was a nice part of my income some years ago but the techniques for this are so different. I certainly haven't given up but I really appreciate the hours of practice that the Youtubers must have put in.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Nerys,
    It makes you wonder how many hours of practice the people on the videos have put in to become that good.

    I am sure you will be making some useful bits soon.
    Keep practicing you will get there.

    This is so often the case. The video makes things look easy. Good luck with future efforts. 😊

    I had a bit of a go with the 3D pen last night and decided that it is far from easy. It's going to take a lot of practice to be able to make anything to any degree of useability. I am even more impressed by the Youtube videos I've watched.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Excellent news NerysπŸ‘
    Funny, I've had similar experiences with Amazon.de.
    Things often arrive the day before you expect them😊
    So it's full steam ahead now is it?
    Or whatever is used to heat the filament😁
    Keep well, an' that's a FLEET order Capt.
    Best wishes to you both,
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    That was quick Nerys.
    Looking forward to seeing how you get on with it.
    Please post some photos of your attempts if you can.

    Reverting to 3D pens. I ordered from Amazon on Sunday night. Not wanting to pay Β£4.99 delivery to get it Thursday, I opted to receive it Friday with free delivery. Acknowledgement said, 'delivery Wednesday'. It arrived Tuesday midday.
    Haven't tried it yet, had hospital visit for treatment from 16-30 to 23-15. Hope I'll feel up to it Wednesday. Watch this space.

    Cheers, Nerys
