this is amazingly gorgeous batch of metal work from form to settings to all of it! So did you use Carving wax or molding wax, and did you cast with the stones already set in the eyes, or did you set those after? and is that a scotchbright or sandpaper finish? Sorry for all the questions but when I see such amazing work I go into question mode!
Reply
:iconstephaniepride:
StephaniePride Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2007  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks I'm glad you like it.
I made a master from carving wax and then had a mould made for the others. The stones were set after. The finish was a low polish (Sanded and then a light tripoli polish) for the face with a high (rouge) polish inside the ears.

and no probs about the questions, I do the same thing ;)
