Ran into another problem I wish somebody could help me with…
This is my first full collection, which I plan to try to sell to
galleries and stores.
I just started to think about ring sizes. my rings are
unconventionalare and not easy to resize.
Therefore I think it would be best to create a mold for each size
(say, 6, 7 and 8) so I don’t have to resize it each time.
As I am creating my rings from wax, they shrinks about 5% after
making the first mold from the model and will shrink another 5%
after making the second mold (after resizing).
Problem is, the model (the one I resize from), say it is a size 8,
is proportionally bigger than the other sizes (lets say there is a
flower on the ring, so the flower is bigger in this one ring than in
the other rings after resize, because that second mold shrinked it).
Is this normal / acceptable, or do I need to shrink this one also,
so the flower on the ring will be the same size as the 6 and 7 size
Hope I explained myself properly… It comes down to this: is it
"normal" that one ring size will have a bigger flower than all the
other sizes, or do I need to shrink this first model I resized from
again, even though there is no reason to do it except for the
different flower sizes?
Thanks in advance,
