Hello and good evening Orchid Community! My name is Austin and this is my first post here, so go easy on me! I have a strong admiration for a certain jewelry designer, and I’ve been trying to reproduce his texture on the jewelry that he creates, but I can’t figure out how. I’ve tried several techniques, including sandblasting, a 6" steel bristle buff, a mizzy wheel, etc. I’m starting to think that this finish may be a purely raw texture straight from casting (with stones cast in the wax?) and then it has been oxidized. That could be wrong as well, and it could have something to do with a technique used on the wax model, I don’t know, so I’ve come to you asking for help! I’m grateful to be here and the membership fee seems well worth it, considering the massive resource of knowledge we have at our disposal. I look forward to hearing your replies!
Included in this post are a few screenshots from this designer showing the texture/finish that I am referring to.
