Another sponsored Project and we decided in this mod that we would do a army style theme but something different then just the normal. The case that was chosen didn’t have a window to begin with so we had to cut this out of the side panel and build a totally new side panel out of 5mm thick Aluminum sheet which we was able to do an acid etching design into the metal. We used an air brusher for the paint work on the case and decided to go with a red, white and black style camouflage which tied in well with the red UV acrylic that the engraving is on. Running with the army theme we decided on a SAS character as the engraving as we have never attempted anything like this and we wanted the whole body instead of just the upper proportions which was quite tricky as the details would be really small but we were up for the challenge.

The rose is one flower that has a rich history, compared to any other flower. For centuries, the rose has been used to symbolize the deep feelings of love and pure emotions. It conveys more than could be spoken through words. It has been a symbol of confidentiality, that gave rise to the Latin phrase sub rosa. This simply means something spoken in secret. The meanings of the white rose in myths and legends are aplenty. According to Greek mythology, all roses were originally white in color. It then magically developed in other colors, tones, and hues. When Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, was pricked by its thorn, her blooded dripped on the white petals, turning them red. When a beautiful maid kissed it lovingly, it blushed, and turned pink. Hence, these myths and legends point towards the loss of innocence. As a result, this white variety stands for innocence and purity. This flower also represents truth, silence, secrecy, reverence, humility, charm, and youthfulness. A single white rose stands for simplicity, while one in full bloom says, “I love you”, or “You are heavenly”. The White Rose..one of the oldest varieties of this flower has long inspired poets, artists and couples in love with its simple, elegant beauty. We wanted to create one using a white and black layered acrylic so once the top layer was engraved the black underneath came through which allowed the definition in the petals to pop right off the surface.

London was founded by the Romans about 50 AD. Its name is derived from the Celtic word Londinios, which means the place of the bold one. London, the capital city of England and the UK, has a history dating back over 2,000 years. During this time, it has grown to become one of the most significant financial and cultural capitals of the world. It has experienced plague, devastating fire,civil war,aerial bombardment and terrorist attacks. The City of London is its historic core and today is its primary financial district, though it now represents a tiny part of the wider metropolis of Greater London. This script filigree style etching was done on a piece of black cast acrylic which really allows all the tiny details in the lines work to really show through off the surface. This etching was really enjoyable to do as the lines and swirls in the font really capture you and draw you in. See more pics here
This commissioned piece was done for a Tottenham Hotspurs fan which he has a whole room dedicated to just Tottenham related items such as posters,signed shirts and much much more so we wanted to give him a piece that was really unique. So we wanted to use a totally new type of engraving material so the etching would look just like a football team sign hanging on the wall, we decided to use a multicolored high pressure rigid engraving laminate sheet that contains a black core that really gives the etching a standout appearance.

The Joker is a fictional character, a comic book supervillian appearing in publications by DC Comics. Throughout his comic book appearances, the Joker is portrayed as a highly intelligent and master criminal. Originally introduced as a psychopath with a warped,sadistic sense of humor,the character has became a goofy prankster, before returning to his darker roots. As Batman’s nemesis, Joker has been a part of many of the defining stories of that character and there has been several different tales but the most common is he fell into a tank of chemical waste which bleaches his skin white and turns his hair green and his lips bright red. As archenemy of the superhero Batman, the Joker had to be included into the comic book collection but this time we decided to do the etching on black cast acrylic which shows every little detail brilliantly. The highlight for me doing the Joker was hes teeth and eyes which every gives him character. See more pics here.
