A Little Spare Time

Recommended Posts

I had a few spare hours last saturday , so decided to indulge myself and do a few experiments. I wanted to make a ring for myself but didn't want to spend the entire day carving wax ,Investing.and casting. Also I wanted to try cuttlefish casting because I have never tried it before. So here are some photos of what I did. The garnet eyes were a after thought and my first attempt at lapadary. I superglued the garnets to bamboo scewers and just used different grit sand paper and then buffed on a muslin wheel. The whole process took about four hours which was much faster than lost wax. At least for me! I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm thinking of doing some engraving work on it later,(not sure). I'll attach more photos if I decide to do so.

The ring was cast in silver and carved with my foredom.
