About the Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    I want to order some plain hardcardboard cards (my custom design) with this. Seeing the method in 3D is outstanding, but thinking about it on a flat surface using PVC could be exciting as well!
    I´ve been experimenting with photo-glowing ink but seeing this in action, is far better than painting by hand.
