  • There’s any workshop available in Berlin? 🙂

  • Rosie Violet

    Do you know what type of marbling ink this is? 🙂

    • im not sure but i’ve been wikipedia-ing a lot about this, looks fun, really want to try

  • I had a kit for doing this when I was younger! Well, it was slightly simpler – but I adored it! 

  • Would love to learn how to do that!

  • Ohhh, I am going to try that out this week.  Looking up a lot of recipes and how-tos.  Anyone have any suggestions?

  • 🙂 it is strange to see this in here. this is called “ebru” and you need “kitre” to do this. there are lots of tutorials but they are in turkish: http://www.uzmantv.com/ebru-nasil-yapilir

    maybe a friend who knows turkish would help you. good luck.

    we call it ‘ebru’

  • Dandelion

    Never mind instructions in Turkish: it’s instructions using commercial products, and their trade names, only available in the US that annoy me.

    nb. English is my home language.

  • Atchit

    The painting was nice. But I really liked that song!  Anyone know the artist and title?

    I used to use oil based enamels – testors – used for models. I would thin them down by a third to keep them from drying out too quickly, and use a tray with water in it to take the paint. Nowadays there are little suction droppers available in craft stores that might work well. Tricky bit is getting paper onto paint sheen evenly without bubbling or breaking the film. Practice on smaller papers first. Process used to be called marbleizing (sp)

  • Zeynep

    This is actually surprisingly easy. Still have some nice creations that I made at a workshop some time ago.

    cattle bile smells bad

  • Guest

    This brought back some elementary school memories. We learned how to do these in our arts and crafts class and gave the creations to parents as gifts. Didn’t know the method was Turkish. Cool.

    The song is Charlotte Mittnacht (The Fabulous Destiny Of…) by DeVotcKa

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
