    Great detail in the silver casting. I ordered this one unpolished, and finished myself with a Dremel and vibratory tumbler.

    Thanks, I was wondering why it wasn't showing.

    Beautiful ring! Great work, it looks awesome. I love the detail you can get from making silver prints.

    Great work, I like that you didn't focus the detail only on the top of the ring. Kinda looks like a futuristic skull ring. What kind of vibratory tumbler are you using?

    Cool, yeah I hear vibrating tumblers are better then rolling tumblers and this one says it retains shape better. How long did you leave it in the tumbler?

    All up, it was probably in there for about 5 hours.

    Good job. Is this a render or a photograph? I can't tell and I am usually good at it...

    Thanks. This is a photo. Renders generally look cleaner, no imperfections, dust etc

    Good renders can look very realistic as imperfections can be simulated.

    True, but I I don't go to that much trouble with my renders, and I wouldn't have posted a render in the just arrived section as it would be misleading.

    I'll post the original render, and another photo later
