My neighbor, who at first I thought might be a problem neighbor because he heads up a local metal band called “Effigy” that also practised right next to our bedrooms, ended up being a solid guy that moved his jam space and became a friend that I could rely on. Anyway, he has a label called “Go Fuck Yourself Records” (the one in Toronto, not the one in Russia), and a while back he asked me to make a pendant for hit. He gave me a very rough drawing of the his idea for and I spent a couple days mulling it over and drawing rought sketches of my own. I mocked them up in photoshop and sent it to him with a nice bevel and a beat-up cracked and rusted metal texture. He asked if I could include that “aged” look in the final metal version, so when I sculpted it out of clay I tried to give it that surface. After getting the master plug perfect, I made a two part metal mold and cast a couple in metal. He’s happy with how it turned out (although at 3″ across, it’s quite heavy), and so am I. You can zoom in on the first picture.
