My most recent order arrived the other day, so I thought Id share one of the prints from it. So here is the strawberry I had printed in Full Colour Sandstone. I think they turned out really well! (loving this material)

Took about 4 iterations to get the model right, turns out strawberries/fruit are quite difficult to get looking correct, I even went as far as to use the Fibonacci sequence to get it looking more 'natural' and to get the spacing/amounts of seeds correct and in the right 'pattern', tricky stuff, but it was a good challenge.
When the sun decides to come out in the coming days, I'm planning to gloss one to see how it turns out. Ive used spray-on gloss a few times on various FCS prints and it generally makes them look much better (not to mention protects them). Will make the strawberry print more shiny like a real strawberry as well, will post images here when its done.

Anyway, more images:

Underside (upped the exposure to see the hollow inside, so the colour is out a bit)
