Once cleaned, here are the letters from my alphabet (technological miracle, I inverted the pic so you can see them on the right side).
As you can see, I made a mistake on some of them, the ones that looks inverted after being inverted :-/
Moreover, my printing tries are just awful, so awful that I won't show even a bit of them.
I tihnk I'll have to restart from the beginning, differently, with more care, briefly : to be followed...
To make you wait, here is a pic of the residues of the cleaning which is, probably, the best thing I got out of it.
I've been quite busy these last ime, preparing my latest exhibition but I didn't work only on this ! I worked very hard on a new project with quite a lot of text and in a much larger shape than what I'm used to. Until now, I spent about 30 hours working on it, I think I've done the most of it. Until I can say it is finished or failed, here is a picture.
My wife lost her wedding ring. It slipped off her finger during a swam on a beach where we use to go. The waves movements quicly make it illusive to get it back. By way of vengeance, I picked a pebble on the beach and made her a ring out of it. Here are the steps of the design : The pebble (doesn't wonder what will happen to him)
The same one, sliced
To avoid to much sanding, after marking the inside diameter of the ring, more cutting
Here comes the hollowing out
The inside is sanded, time to even up the outside and to polish it all
The ring finished, all angles polished to avoid sharp edges, only the varnish to get done
And my wife's hand has a new ornament, phew, the worst has been avoided :-)
