Not Oh My God, but Organic Metal Gallery...
This ring was carved in wax first, then polished etc...I put something called "Ceram-it" in the divits to add some colour, but it is starting to chip away (I don't think it's because of the product, but because I'm just so darn hard on jewellery!)
Take classes at OMG!
i love that !!!
cant believe you actually made it !!!
how long did it take and how much did it cost you to make ?
Well, taking the class costs the most of course!
The wax carving doesn't take too long.
It was a time where I just picked it up and did it and didn't think about what I wanted it to look like. So I spent 1/2 a class carving (probably a little more) a class is about 2.5 hours.
Then I leave it there for my wicked awesome teacher to fire the wax and then fill the mold with silver. When I come in to the next class, I have this beautiful thing covered in white uck and bubbles. That's when you go to town on sanding and polishing
It's cast in a centerfuge (sp?) so the divits ended up getting filled with silver too, but the outline was there, so I drilled the silver back out. I wore it for a couple of months before I finally put the colour on it.
So in all it probably took me about 5 or 6 hours to make (but I didn't have to do the casting etc...)....
