Ants Miseretto part 11 – Risk Reduction

Further work on the ant pendant.  I began carving the wood texture and knothole, using carbide burrs, and engraving the thin lines for the knothole.  Above is how the shibuichi looks without the patina.

And a quick patina to see how things are coming along…

More shaping to look like an old branch…

And here it is with a quick patina, ready to add the little gold legs to the carpenter ant tomorrow.
