Heavy Wendelring Cuff 2 by ou8nrtist2 Heavy Wendelring Cuff 2 by ou8nrtist2
‎Forged stainless steel.Started with dimensional stock-1/2" x 3/8ths"and ground a gradual taper towards both ends (keeping it square in section throughout),before forging the twists.
This is a new one and I just wanted to show what it looks like halfway through the polishing process.I'm attracted to that crisp contrast between the dark interstices and the buffed high points...
So I don't want to polish too much or I'll lose that aesthetic.
The eroded spot on the end(finial)of the right side is where i used too much heat.I will fill it with a spot weld and clean it up doing a final heat to match the color of the rest of the piece.

I like it this way, without the polish.

Looks good so far. If you like the contrast, what would happen if you put a resist on the raised part and electro-etched the piece?

I've never done electro etching actually.
What acid would I use for stainless?

Salt water should work just fine for pretty much any metal. I could explain the process here, but you're probably better off reading a tutorial: [link]

Thanks,
It sure looks simple.Could open up a whole new technique of surface ornamentation for me if it works.It just seems a little weird because in my experience stainless is so resistant to etching and corrosion...
