Cherry Blossom and Dragonfly Tsuba Pendant part 5

More cherry flowers, at 4 o’clock.

Above, with a quick patina.

And here, starting to round out the dragonfly parts, just rough carved so far with carbide burrs.

OK, above is the dragonfly body carved.  Now to work on the wings – I have to decide how to make the wings look right.

Above is a test I did in copper – the wing on the lower left is one method, and the others are different. I mulled it over while vegetating in front of the TV last night. I think I’ve decided on a hybrid between the two.
