Glass candle cups. - Jen Gagne's art journal
I keep a separate journal for personal stuff. Visit:
Glass candle cups.|
Sure, I'm interested. :)
I make the acid resist digitally, so in theory it should be able to pick up a fairly detailed image. After all, it picked up the little curlicues on the "R" and "A" in Claire... The pendant is about 1.5 inches tall, for reference, so that's fairly good resolution.
If you can get me a copy of the kanji to use, I could give it a shot. Bold lines would reproduce better, if only because it'll show up more brightly on the glass.
If I can't get a successful transfer onto the glass, I can make the resist using a brush or marker using the right stroke weights, etc... but I'm sure it would look better if I could pull this off digitally!
Right now I'm figuring my custom pendants are $20+$4 to ship.
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org when you want to get rolling, and let's try this out.
P.S.: Is this the kanji?http://www.kanjisymbol.net/mean/daydream.html
It romanizes it as "kuusou" instead of "musou" though... you must mean a different one.
Anyway, I'm sure I could acid-etch kanji of about that same complexity and boldness. :)
No, those aren't the exact kanji, but would be the same complexity. Actually, the second one is, but the first is a different character that is normally read yume. So, pretty close! If you google yume + dream + kanji you should find the first character. I'm off to get my son off the school bus so I don't have time right now.
I'll leave this until november or so. Right now I'm too broke but by xmas I will be wanting to treat myself. I'm happy to know it's possible!
