In the home stretch – Day 90

Can’t believe it is day 90 and a beautiful day at that! Happy Easter! Day 81: Rolling mill, metal word “Hope”. Use more pressure next time, aluminum is really too soft to use in rolling mill; Day 82: Rolling mill, decorative leave, one time use, I was surprized at how much detail I got from such a delicate leaf; Day 83: Rolling mill, decorative soft metal keys, didn’t work well; Day 84: Used a cut-off disk in my flex-shaft, learning curve for control, I can see a lot of potential; Day 85: Used dapping punches in a dapping block; Day 86: Hammered old coins with brass hammer on steel block; Day 87: Taped washers to copper piece and hit with brass hammer on steel block; Day 88: Rolling mill, thread, I like it, who knew it would leave such a good texture?; Day 89: Hammered the copper piece, with brass hammer, on part of the deck, very little texture; Day 90: Hammered copper piece on old file with two textures on each side, first side.
