Don’t you just love it when you get something done? Past few weeks I’ve been working on a Zippo engraving for a customer. My first idea was to make it rather simple design, but that sort of didn’t work out. This is first of the ‘replicated pattern’ type of engraving I’ve done, at least on this level. One I made a mirrored design engraving, but I think this one is an improvement over the old one.
Anyways, that engraving is now completed. Here are few photos of engraving in progress.
In this stage the lower right corner is completely finished (I just wanted to see how the final result will look like, impatient as I am), all the shading is done and some of the background is removed (the more shiny spots).
And here it is, completely finished.
Design took about 8 hours (I’m still very slow at it) and engraving 13 hours.
So, what do y’all think about it?
