New for 2016
This is not the very first casting session for the year, just a few new pieces I thought I'd post on-line.
The key ring tags are for my son-in-law who likes to make his own beer. The Letter "G" is for my wife Gloria. I am experimenting with different styles so I can have a go-to version I know will look good for other pendants. Of course Gloria gets to reap the benefits of what I make.
|The wax patterns cut with the Taig CNC mill.
|I love the look of white silver fresh out of the pickle.
|Key tags polished, slight patina on background.
|G with heavy base light carving
|G with light base and deep carving, blackened.
I cast these in the morning and have them looking like this by early afternoon, about two-ish.
