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.

Running Man Head Badge Re-Make

I learned from a customer that a badge I had made for them years ago suffered a horrible road injury and was lost, so this is a replacement.  I changed it up a bit this time adding some rivets for extra strength, and using stainless steel as a backing instead of nickle, hopefully the additional strength will mean that this new badge can withstand anything the road can throw at it.
