I’m just quickly posting this here to show someone the current finish on this size ten Nibbler ring. If you’re not that person, you can ignore this. Unfortunately I had to remove the Nibbler and Zoidberg-inspired Futurama rings from my Etsy store because FOX IP freaked out and filed a — in my opinion rather petty — DMCA violation. So I can’t sell them there any more. In general, I understand their desire to protect their trademark, but I think they’re making a big mistake by hunting down fan art like this which clearly doesn’t hurt any of their commercial interests, and it could be argued actually support and enhance those interests. Oh well.
Along those lines… For someone else… I’m trying to figure out the best way to colour the Zoidberg-inspired ring. Cough. I mean. Cthulhu-inspired. Yes, that’s it. Anyway, the copper finish is my favorite. I’ve been trying to get a good orange enamel, but if I put it on thick, it looks lumpy and/or cheap. If I put it on thin, it looks, well, thin. I think the only way to do it is by applying a couple coats, then buffing it half off — that’s where it’s at in the photo — and then repeating the process I’m guessing three times. It would take a day, and I still don’t think it would look that great. To be honest, the best way to do this ring if the person wants a true orange would be to cast it in plastic… Hmmmmmmmm…. That has me thinking… I could cast it in glow in the dark orange plastic which would be pretty sweet. But for now I consider the orange a failure.
