When I got the specs for this I knew it was going to be a larger badge, and the client wanted it in silver, so I was stoked to see a nice big badge with some classy materials.  I really like the way it came out, with the layers, and the oxide providing some nice depth.  It feels good in your hand like a little shield, and the star trek logo on the front fits well and is centered well.  The client designed it, I just fashioned it, but I am stoked the way it came out.

This thing came out so nice!  I used paint marker masks, acid etching, and a dark black patina to really bring out the look on this.  I really enjoyed making this, each step was slow and deliberate, from cutting the masks with a razor blade, to painting on the paint marker, to acid etching, to patina, each step was oddly satisfying.  The final results are really nice.
