I hand-sculpted this coin out of clay, then cased it in a metal alloy. Then, I coated it in black acrylic, and wiped most of it away. Then, I painted a gold metallic paint over it, and came out with that antiqued look. I then hot-glued a thin leather strip to use as a cord to the back so I didn't have to make an unattractive loop at the top of the coin to wear it. A VERY difficult project that was VERY time-consuming. But in the end, I love the result and am the only person around with something like this.

kate4527Amazing. And I have looked at a picture of the coin from the film and if you look closly you can see that it isn't the one in that picture. Well done, I wish I had one.

cptShort*claps and whistles* You tell 'er!! ^o^

GREAT peice of art, that's... that's unbeleivably good. Love all those tiny little details, like the slits next to the triangles.. (I don't know.. figure it out. :P) The skull, especially the teeth, look wonderful, 'tis truly an exelent display. :) And so tiny, too! It may not be 'perfect', but it's just about the best someone could do. Now, I'm off to look at the rest of your gallery! *struts away*

Jagermeister3171.) I'm a girl. not a guy
2.) Everything you find in my gallery is surely created by my own hands.

There are obvious flaws (just like in everyone else's work). For instance, if you look in the bottom right of the coin, I accidentally squished it a bit flat before I fired it. It is not "perfect".

I DID make this myself. If you were wondering how I did the technical patterns, I used various objects. i.e. needle tools, razor blades, etc. Small things for intricate work...

It took me weeks to make this. If you choose not to believe it, that is your own option. I will not let it get to me because *I* know I made this and I won't reduce myself to getting worked up over one person's rudeness.
