Xsjado XL: Making-of
Larger Pictures in this Photo Set.
- Photo 1: This is a hand sculpted replica of the actual skate. It’s a clay model that is made on a 8″ x 8″ tile.
I make it large so that I can get as much detail as possible into the bigger clay model before shrinking it down into the small jewelry size. Then, I’ll laser scan this clay model, and that will input it into my computer.
- Photo 2: This is the scanned 3d image of the clay model on my computer. With this image I can shrink it down to the smaller size which will be used for the jewelry. Then I can clone the skate, and arrange them how I like.
Once the skates are arranged and ready to go, I will cut the final design on our CNC machine into wax.
- Photo 3: This wax piece is then used to cast a silver master piece and I can use that to create a mold to produce all the final pieces. The final pieces are then cast in pewter and plated/painted.
