this is my carving wax project. yes it is huge, i like big rings if i'm going to bother. it is sized for my pinky and the edge part of the band is meant to protrude where there is no finger next to the pinky. the top is a little building with two domes(i was thinking onion domes of st. basil's and tremont) with a winding spirally road going up.
we also had to do a build-up wax project which i ended up mostly modelling by hand and then sticking on. it's a mermaid in a sphinx position. here's her front looking like the sphinx:
and here's her back so you can see she has a fish body not a lion body. i tend to like Fish better than Lions in RL too, zodiacally speaking.
