RockaBilly Bling Plastic Mould Cutting

Hey all, been a while since I have posted anything, its the silly season for jewellers...

A mate of mine, Colin Creed, had a design he needed machined, but the detail was too fine to hold in wax so we decided to give mould cutting a swing.. something new for me...

Firstly, the artwork and its origins, can be found here,

Rockabilly Bling


This artwork was converted into 2.5D geometry by Colin Creed and supplied to me as a reverse negative for pathing, which was done in Deskproto,

Then off to the mill, the plastic material was harvested from a bread board I bought at a $2 store locally.

the video sequences follow logically and some images of the final mould at the end of the post.

Thanks for your interest

and some closeup imagery still :)
