Inspired by Watership Down, this badge features an etched copper witch hazel leaf with high polish brass rabbit. I really like the way this came out!
I made this green sugar skull headbadge a while ago, and finally got some pictures of it installed, rockin!
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.
Looks great! I am still super impressed with how this came out. Looks even better on the bike. More here.
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.
