i like the "negative" left in the pitch!
a little something i made in class this week... i'm learning how to make dies for a hydraulic press, and also repoussé and chasing. so i textured the copper in a rolling mill with some fishnet fabric, made a general skull like shape with the hydraulic press, and then hammered all the the details in with little tools i made myself in a previous class. pretty fun.

i haven't really been that into the hydraulic press, the results don't really excite me. i'm still much more into lost wax casting, i dunno, the hydraulic press isn't really doing much for me. i don't really see myself buying a hydraulic press and making jewelry with it anytime soon. i'm still enjoying the class (even though it's from 9-5 on saturdays), getting to practice my french and learning lots of new techniques.
