    Thank you Sir :)

    I got some copper last week and this is my first foray into copper beads. The copper ones are going to be etched to soften the surface then possibly a verdigris green in the grooves and liver brown on the rifling and then lightly polish to enhance the edges,,,,,, or maybe make a mess of it and explore different options

    The plan for the Ti beads will be heat coloured so that the deep recesses have a blue colour and nearer the surface purple,,,,,,, and then polish out the colour off the outside curves and use a lesser temperature to make them a straw colour ,,, or maybe make a mess and,,,,,

    Half of all art is knowing when to stop fiddling with it and to stand back and say "that's it"!

    That's it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, for now!!

    I really like the top right bead. The knurled blue one. I like that kind of design and the colours are really subtle but still nice.

    EDIT: I removed the image quote as we have it 3 times above and whilst I don't think having it again would hurt I think I will keep the page a little cleaner.

    I was trying to make a bead to complement my watch-band,,,,, I'm going to try polishing the surface of the blue bead so the surface contrasts with the blue in the grooves,,,,or maybe stone wash it. Whatever,,, tomorrow's another day :)

    I was going thru the forums and discovered this thread. There are some seriously fine craftsmen that are on the EDC. I'm amazed at the variety and origionality of your works. Exceptional work done by all here.:)
