Here are some of the “shaded” engraving pieces I have completed.
These are engraved using a micro-motor (held in the hand) and good quality diamond, stone and rubber abrasive burs to develop different “shades” from quite bright (diamonds) to darker areas (which are achieved by polishing areas back with stone and rubber burs). Some of the more subtle transitions in shade are achieved by holding the burs directly in the hand and rubbing it on already engraved areas.
More of my work, and a few hints and tips on creating this type of engraving can be viewed on my blog: www.jeansart.biz
