"home made" print baren with steel bearing balls

hi

first message on wetcanvas, so hello to all art lovers in here.

Over the last half year I was experimenting in art school with self made barens.
With the use of a laser cutter and resin printer in the fablab I came up with a few solutions that do a great job for me.
This forum seemed a nice place to share it with "the world".

(it seems I'm only allowed to post pictures after 2 posts,
so scroll down, hopefully I manage to post them after another message)

The barens in the picture are with free moving steel bearing balls, on the left 5mm, right 2mm.
Depending on the print size, carving and paper thickness they both have their advantage.
I have some very nice results after experimenting with them on laser cut wood engravings and various styles of paper.

Re: "home made" print baren with steel bearing balls

perhaps I should start producing and selling them

It's rather time consuming, it takes a day for the resin printer to produce the parts.

But if there is interest, we can work something out.

Re: "home made" print baren with steel bearing balls

a few prints

Buddha: about 650 mm
Elipse and rectangle: 400 mm wide

All prints are made with 4mm plywood processed in a laser cutter.
Some have several layers of print on 1 sheet of paper.
Some color backgrounds are made with mica, monotype.
All ink is water based.

The 2 types of paper used: 200 gr paper (no 2, 7) and chinese paper (no 3, 4, 5, 6).
For the 200 gr paper I used the 5 mm baren,
for the chinese paper a mix of the 5 mm and 2 mm, depending on the layer.
