Rock and Roll Skull


I got some feedback from James after seeing his Rock ‘n Roll themed skull ring pics.

He hated it.

Not really, but he did have some great notes on the treble clef in the forehead.

“Looks too much like a & sign, you dick,” he said.  Well, maybe not like that.

Hey, when your’e right, you’re right.  I went ahead and re-carved this symbol and put in some microphone-ish texture on either side of the skull’s head.  I’m much happier with the result.

We’re not quite done with this wax yet, but getting close.

It’s funny how a little bit of ‘english’ on a symbol can completely change its readability.






We’re getting to the new year now.  Been busy.  This is what my wax table looks like right now:

Mind you that’s after about 5 hours of sweeping up dust and polishing compound.

  1. Matt,
    That thing is crazy cool. I am amazed how a true artist can take a jumble of ideas in my head and turn them into a three dimensional sculpture. You are truly gifted for a “dick” that doesn’t know a treble clef from an “&” sign. LOL. Thank you for your effort and talent. – James.

  2. Looks like a lot of musical skulls for the New Year! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! -Chuck

  3. Happy new year to you, Chuck.

    Yeah, James, I think we have a winner here. I’m going to clean her up, finish the inside the shank carving, and get ready to cast. It’s going to look REALLY great with the stones put in.
