I’ve been doing some new pendants, in a palette of whites this time, I really prefer the circular shape to the rectangular ones, on the whole, and I think that these ones looks quite nice with the bail showing rather than hidden behind the glass. I love the reactions between the silver leaf and the french vanilla, which you can see in the creamy coloured ones in the picture below. I find the blues and golds that appear quite lovely, and more varied and complex than the silver reaction with reactive cloud.
I’m practicing with the silver and with a paintable version of silver gilding to see if I can be a little more precise with the placement of the silver, we’ll see how the expiriments come out. I think it would be interesting to control the placement of the reactions more so that I can use it as an element to build up imagery.
Ooh, pwetty!So talented
Wow, so pretty. Do you hand etch these or sandblast to make the engraved look?
Thanks! The texture is made with diamond wheel lathe engraving.
