Badger necklace

With the upcoming event of a friend’s birthday, I thought it would be nice to make her something personal and handmade. I settled upon a pewter necklace of a badger

First I got a piece of dry plaster, and made sure to flatten the surface

Then I began to etch the design into the surface

After tidying up the design, and creating a pouring hole and air vents, it’s ready to go!

The back side has a really nice smooth finish from where it was against the clear block of plaster

It still needs a bit of tidying, but so far looking good

Unfortunately the plaster cracked during the process, leaving this hairline across the body of the badgers, but with a bit of filing and polishing that should be fixed
