Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish Tutorial


CNC milling the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” in tellurium copper. I fought with computer modeling this monster all weekend!


Here’s what the CNC was milling beneath the coolant bath. The “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” in tellurium copper. This side needs gold eyes and some screws. After that, something needs to be engraved on the back. That’s a quarter next to it…


Here’s the backside of the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” in tellurium copper. This side is being hand engraved. You can see it from the design transfer stage to the completed 24 karat gold gear inlay.


Halfway finished removing background on the hand engraved rear side of the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish.” Tellurium copper, 24 karat gold.


With texturing and shading on the hand engraved portion of the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” I’m going to call this side finished. Now to finish the CNC frog side…


Back to the CNC side of the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” in tellurium copper. Inlaying 24 karat gold in the eyes.


Texturing the background in the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” in tellurium copper. Difficult to get the tiny carbide bur down into the tight spots. Have to be very careful not to let it get out of control!



With the addition of a small leather wallet, the “Nightmare Frog Pocket Fetish” is finished. A little more than 2 inches tall, in 1/4 inch thick tellurium copper and 24 karat gold.

Thanks for Looking!
