Intaglio time! (read more about the reversed engraving technique in my Intaglio gallery folder!)
My amber work has been resting for a while but now in Easter times I'm working on a tiny wrinkly elder dragon frozen in time!

Meet Leeroy. ;)

There will be two sides to him, I split an amber egg in two and burr a double engraving. Lots of work, need to take every angle into consideration as well as the varying magnifying effect of the shape.
Not finished yet, he will get a pretty silver bezel covering the cut and possibly some other adornments. I have plans..! :squee:


(finished!)

That. Is. Amazing. ^.^ What kind of resin did you use for the amber?

I ended up using epozy. Messy but efficient.
Along with glass/enamel paints, pure pigment, acrylics.. Er. "Mixed media". And a polishing creme made for cars to remove rust. *lol*

Hihi! I like pushing the envelope every single time. Making things you already tried is boring! :)
Took a lot of sketching and planning before I dared sawing the egg in half though. :hug:

Problem is when blowing up something from the tiny size of an inch to cover a whole screen.. it looks so distorted and uneven when you do.. Most of the work is done with 1mm ball burrs.. :)
