I’ve spent the last few hours sawing out the shape for the backing of the pendant and filing it to, hopefully, fit the shape exactly, which is an incredibly painstaking job. My arms hurt, my hands hurt, my eyes hurt BUT its looking good so far. Fingers crossed things are finally starting to go right!
I’ve been trying out press and peel paper as a resist to etch a precise looking chemical formula on to some copper which will be used on the necklace, the formula is for the nitrile rubber I will also be using. The press and peel paper is not as great as I was hoping it would be but I still got some pretty good results.
As predicted, I have already had technical issue’s with the making of my final pieces which have set me back but still, I’m fairly happy with the results so far! This is not a finished pendant as i’m not 100% happy with the colour it has turned out but it is looking pretty cool under UV light and when it glowing in the dark. I’m making some more today so hopefully this one will turn out a bit better!
