Art Metals 1 Bookmark Process Post #2

Today in Art Metals 1, some students began to cut out the designs they created for the top of their bookmarks. JT Tulloch was one of these students.

I asked JT a few questions about his design inspiration and the process of creating the bookmark as he worked.

  1. JT, what were you inspired by when you created your bookmark?
    • I go boating a lot in the summer and we see a lot of whales. Whales have always interested me so I decided to create a bookmark that pertains to my life.
  2. What stage are you currently at in creating your bookmark?
    • I am currently cutting out the top frame of the whale’s tail.
  3. What tool are you using to cut out the whale’s tail?
    • I am using the jeweler’s saw.
  4. Do you plan to use texture on the tail?
    • Yes, I plan on texturing the frame so that the whale’s tail will continue onto the edges of the frame.
  5. Do you have any experience with using textures?
    • Yes, I recently finished creating a stripped bass keychain and the face, gills, and tail were all textured.

The next phase of this process will begin once the students finish cutting out the tops of their bookmarks. Be sure to come back and check it out!
