The buttons, shown before, are part of an idea that I had which consists on "building" an XVIII century character in order to make guided historical walks here in Lisbon.
First used the paste to do the body for a Grand Cross of the Order of Santiago de Espada (order given to artists of merit.
The top was made out of a simple roll of stripes of paper with a disk shape and then all covered with the paste (used air drying modeling paste on the circular edges) and decorated it with red glass (sort of) bulb I found on the river shore some days ago and some plastic pearls. Painted it in gold and varnished
For the tip I've cutted the stick a bit in V shape and covered with the paste. After dried I painted it and varnished.
Now the fun fun was making this!
Now my question is "is this real a fantasy ring or ... shall I wear it in daylife?" don't know ... What do you think?
