Rather than go with a wax and then cast, may I suggest using a basic
signant ring as a base (Hollow or solid - Any shape top)and add a
high relief plate to the top. Once soldered on it will apear as if
the top was carved like a pantograph machine does school rings. You
can then enamel in between with the colors.
I've attached a superman logo picture so you can see what I am
describing. If you take a plate of gold (or silver) approx. 40,000"
thick and cut it out keeping the black parts intact as frames you
could then solder them to the top of the signant ring. This will
have a clean look. Then enamel the different colors in the empty
Start with the outside shape & cut that to match of the top of the
ring you chose to use. Then draw the logo on the metal including the
outside frame surrounding it. This way you'll see how it will all
fit. I'd make the outside frame a little wider for a tougher ring.
(protection from wear and tear knocks) Then drill where needed, saw
out the inside patterns. Finally, solder all the parts to the top of
the ring. Take care that the peices don't "float" around when you
solder them. (very little solder needed on the inside parts) The
outside frame must be well soldered so you can trim up the outside
and not see a seam. The ring should look like one solid piece when
As a final touch before you enamel (or use cold "ceramit" works
nicely too) polish the top surfaces on a lap if you have one for a
crisp flat top. If you don't have a lap just be careful to not round
off the edges too much when you polish.
The hardest part of this job for me is drawing the logo. Take your
time with the saw and it will look great.
