In the batch of rescued buttons that I took molds from for re-casting, there was one that had a profile on it that reminded me of ancient Rome.
Granted, I have a vivid imagination sometimes.
I cast it in pewter, and immediately it struck my fancy. The pewter emblem is very small and dainty, but distinctive.
I wish I had a fancy phrase in latin to put here!
I took one of my expandable ring forms and made a ring out of it, it fits my pinkie finger without being expanded. But it will enlarge to fit a bigger finger.
When I look at it, it reminds me of ancient Pompeii.
Very worn around the edges, a little pitted.
Like it was unearthed from an excavation by an archeologist.
These are the fanciful things I think of when I'm casting and putting patina on pewter. How to make it look old and very rare.
Did I make it?
