As much as i love listening to metal, i also love working with it. One of the projects we did in Art Metals was casting rings. Below you will see a silver ring that i made. The was no simple task. First we started by carving the ring out of wax. After cleaning it to near perfection, we had to invest it in plaster. After cooking it for a while, it was time to cast it with silver. Cleaning and sanding came after, followed by buffing.
I really enjoyed doing this project, and i found the long process with many steps to be almost therapeutic. I was really happy with how the ring turned oput and hope to make more in the future.
