As you can now see its moved on a fair way since the last time i showed it to you and i think you can get a feel for how its going to look once complete, although i still have a fair amount of work still to do on the case itself. The main body has had enamel applied and rubbed back several times this proved tricky when working out measurements as the paint is around 3mm thick, rubbing these coats back then applying light coats once again has given me the opportunity to also age the look.
I love the way the semi precious minerals add colour and depth to this piece giving an almost irresistible feeling of wanting to touch them.
The next step of work is to start the interior design, I've decided to add lights to the interior and a small hidden compartment behind the main draw will house the electrics, talking about the draw the tiny draw knob has a generous piece of blue lace agate also mounted into the front. All in all I'm pleased how this is moving along but for me the really exciting work is about to begin on the interior hopefully this wont add to much extra weight to the piece as it already is quite hefty.
Have a great week everyone. Tony.
