Nathan Morgan’s Blue’s Power and a few out of the fire.

1 Comment

Nathan Morgan’s ring is finally finished.  Blues Power, jack.

I made the teeth a little crooked just to give it some gas.  Going to ship this sucker this week.  NMT, let me know when you’re playing in town again.  Maybe I’ll swing it by in person.

I’m also ready to finish up Mike’s Japanese ring as well as my new Boss Voodoo with the gold teeth.  The casts came out great.

To avoid keeping all kinds of precious metal at home, I do all my metal work at a shop right outside of the city.  I’ve done the odd gold tooth now and again, but his will be my first time doing an entire grill full of gold teeth.  I’ll try to post photos of the entire process so you cyber-space f’ers can laugh your asses off if I screw it up.

Japanese ring is next, though.  It’s going into the tumbler this afternoon and then I’m setting the gemstones.  Pics soon.

NMT is good to go

I got the word from Nathan that the Blues Power skull is good to cast.

I’ve had a lot of people asking about the new site and all I can say is that it’ll happen soon.  I don’t like the internet and I don’t much care for the tedium of site design, so its dragging.  I promise its not the only thing in my life that’s behind schedule.

Anyways,  stay tuned.

Blues Power

Think I’ve got Nathan’s ring figured out here.

In addition to carving the type into the shank and forehead, I’ve put a glare on the eyes so they are a little more hostile than usual.  I’ve seen these guys play and I wanted to it the aggressive style of the music.  I also made the teeth crooked and a little less even.

Let me know what you think, Nathan, and I’ll fill this bastard with silver.

Blues Power

I’m making a Big Voodoo for Nathan Morgan.  For those of you who don’t listen to real music anymore, he’s the Nathan Morgan of the Nathan Morgan Trio.

Nathan’s got a Big Voodoo coming at him and I’m trying to put together something nice.

My only problem with this so far is that the text on the forehead and the text on the shank are the same size and the same typeface.  They’re so close that they could almost be read together from a 3/4 angle.   Might mean either the shank text or the forehead text has to change.

I need Nathan to weigh in on this.  Personally, I like the text big and bold on the shank.  The forehead text could be changed to a thinner line or make smaller.  Either way, it’s going to look great.  Hell, if Nathan likes it, it stays the way it is.
