Vikings!

Life has a way of just zipping by, and I really haven't much chance to get into my workshop.  Here is a copper pendant I made from a copper disk.  This was etched using Ferric Chloride, with the image transferred via the PnP method.  This gives a really nice crisp image.  It was colored using just a propane flame, quenching, flame, quench, etc. over and over until I was satisfied with the colors.  That's how it goes, you never know what color variation to expect!  To finish, I used Baroque Gilding Wax, gorgeous stuff to work with.
