|Polished bronze scarab pendant [message #78674] Mon, 11 November 2013 02:46 UTC
Finally got around to printing this little scarab in polished bronze, and the quality of the print is terrific. Very happy with the polish and detail in this material...starting to look like a genuine piece of jewelry!|
Raw bronze has a nice texture but a particularly raw patina, quite mottled; I think the photo, if anything, looks a bit more charming than the real thing. Polish goes a long way.
Thanks to Shapeways for continuing to push the technology. Can't believe what's possible now, even compared to the first metal prints I unboxed several years ago.
