If it's a good idea and I have time a request, more a suggestion, may influence a future art piece. I have a half dozen suggestions from others on my plate, but do give a suggestion.
Started in the morning, took short breaks for lunch and dinner, finished by early evening. Trying to force myself to work faster. My art takes too long because I try to over analyze it, make it perfect and hesitate. A bad habit I'm trying to cure.
24 karat gold, pure 100% gold is a very soft metal, it can be scratched by a fingernail. Gold is strengthened by adding small amounts of other metals to make gold alloy. 18 karat gold is a harder, more durable metal used to make gold jewelry. Much harder than pure gold.
The gold ballerina is a piece of living gold jewelry, durable, strong and wear resistant.
