I’ve been listening to The Next Day by David Bowie and it made me do an angle I don’t usually, because I am deeply afraid of chins tipped back. But it didn’t fail entirely!
I’ve been reading From Here to Eternity by Caitlin Doughty; maybe that set ye olde braine gears turning.
I also searched up photos from this post to use as inspiration.
Currently working on a new piece in art; I have also found my new profile picture in all things. Clever utilization of a smashed bust, the face of which remained mostly intact. I’m now adding more clay faces and piling them under dirt and glue in imitation of an archaeological dig of sorts, but it’s the archaeological dig to discover YOURSELF. Bow before my imagination.
This stuff is expensive, yo. I think actual silversmithing materials are probably cheaper, but unfortunately I do not own a soldering iron or silver solder or sheet silver or flux or a ring mandrel or a handsaw (father, take note)
However, I did find Art Clay Silver in an art store, so I got 10 grams to experiment with. Sintered silver is scarily fragile, which irks me, but I made this ring which feels solid enough. It also looks kind of jacked, because I had no idea what I was doing, but let’s just say that makes it more pirate-aesthetic.
