While we’ve been talking about this in the lab for a couple of years, we gave it a try a couple of weeks ago.

How about mixing different colors (or materials) in the feed bin to provide multi-color (or multi-material) objects.

multi-color/multi-material feed bin

You are looking at a feed bin with two pieces of cardboard inserted to produce some separated space.  Remember to remove the cardboard before printing.

Here we have a layer during a 3D print.   One can see the multi-color spread as taken from the feed bin shown above.

Two SW pots produced via multi-color bed.

Here’s the final result (after kiln firing).   Shown are two SW pots produced via a multi-color powder bed.
