William Henry Steampunk Viperfish – Side B, Part 2

Finished the sculpting today! Here’s a before and after of the squid-thing. Lastly will be detailing with rivets and panels


, then stippling the background (ugh!)

Big push on finishing the background stippling today. Here, I’ve been working around the edges of the bad tempered anglerfish…

Yay! The stippling is done (except for the tiny spot I missed – can you spot it?)… Next are rivets and panels, then it’s finally done!

At long last! It’s done, and here’s the beauty shot. The details: William Henry model B12 scales, 4 inches long 416 stainless steel, hand engraved with 24 karat gold and copper inlays.

Thanks for looking!

    Tom, I stumbled across your blog while looking for metal art blogs. I’ve never done this type of work, but I am absolutely blown away by the attention to detail! Just wanted to commend you on the gorgeous art. Thanks for sharing all the images here and on Instagram. Even though I don’t do engraving, I’m going to be following. Your work is inspiring.
