Playing Darts Beer Handle

Here is my latest engraving.
The dart board has been engraved in reverse (left of the handle) so that it is viewed through the glass.  The hand aiming the dart has been engraved to the right of the handle using several polishing techniques to give depth and form to the image.

This is only the second piece of engraving I have attempted using the polishing technique, so it has taken quite a few hours to complete.  I am hoping that with a little more practice I will get a little quicker at completing this type of work.  I find this style of engraving much more intresting and satisfying to engrave.

I have just listed it on New Zealand's TradeMe... it will be intresting to see how it goes.

This picture frame was my first attempt at engraving using polishing to create depth in the image.

This was done for a friend who was looking for something different as a gift for her future daughter-in-law in Australia.

I really enjoyed the challenge this presented!!
