Moon and Sun

I just came back from a wonderful weekend retreat in Virginia where I had a great time teaching. My students were awesome!! A very talented and nice group of ladies.
This is one of the projects they did in Pewter. The design is a stamp from Judikins.


The MercArt tools used were:
*Star Wheel to create the "fan" look design of the Moon.
*Brass Brush (or Fiber Glass Tool) to get the burnished look of the background.
*Two different Decorative Wheels for the outside frame. In my case I used the Squares Wheel and the Diagonal with Gap wheel.
*Big Wheel to create the row of dots around the sun rays.
*Teflon D-01: To trace the design and outline the embossed areas.
*Stylus: To add the swirls of the sun.
*Cup and Ball #4 and #6:To emboss the rays,  moon & sun.
*Patina: to antique the pewter.
