Today is all about sculpting and detailing the centipede. More work with a flat graver, followed sculpting with a small flat faced punch (with a slightly radius on the face). Above, you can see the results of about two hours of sculpting.
Here’s the same thing, but with a quick patina added. Much improved, don’t you think?
I want the centipede body to really stand out as very dark, something not easily done in stainless steel. I’ve carefully stippled each body segment with a small carbide round, sharpened to a short taper on a diamond lap.
, above, an overall view of about three hours of work today.
Thanks for looking!
