Sorry for the bad pictures!

This one is mokume gane, i called it Earth form Above

This one is the scraps from my clock (antother post) to look like wood

This one was a wire and powder one, hard to see inpic, but the black part is recessed

This one used mica shift

This is Celstial Night, the stars and moon are 3D, it also has some gold leaf

This is an inlay technique, the top is completely smooth




I am up for one on one swapping!

Nice tins! (and nice stuff in the other threads too Grin)

Sorry for the bad pictures!

Have you tried getting pics of things like this on the bed of a scanner, if you have one??  Works pretty well even with dimensional objects (as long as the main thing you want to show is one side).

I see that your camera does have a closeup function since some of the tighter shots are in focus (so more closeups please  Grin!).  But the light is creating a bit too much glare on some of them to see the details well.  If you're using a flash, you might try overriding it to get rid of a lot of the glare and also give the item more dimension, or if you're not using flash try going somewhere that direct light is blocked and you're getting only scattered light.  The flattened square rope of gold mica clay especially might be less subtle with one of those methods.

P.S.  Which kinds of distortions did you use for your mokume gane?  And were they from the top or bottom of the stack?

The stuff I no longer have is taken with an old crappy camera, so that stuff can no longer be photoed.  The stuff on the pink towel was with my new camera, it deos have an up close setting, I didn't turn off the flash, I should try that.

For my mokume gane, I used little balls of translucnet pushed up through the bottom.

Thanks for looking
