Golden Scarab, Egypt, c. 2250 BCE by VictorianSpectre Golden Scarab, Egypt, c. 2250 BCE by VictorianSpectre
This 3-piece golden scarab was recovered from the Temple of Khamoon, located 33 km west of Giza, situated in the shifting sands of the Sahara desert.  Its exact purpose remains a mystery, but it appears to fit into something...

Awesome! I've tried to make these in the past with clay, mine never seem to come out quite as nice. Great job!

Thank you so much!  I first sculpted this from Chavant NSP clay, then made a silicone mold of it.  The casting you see here was made by pouring liquid plastic into the mold

I was thinking of trying to make something similar, but with aluminum or something. Got to make a forge first though lol.

lol.  That's awesome, I always thought it would be so badass to be a metalsmith.  I've worked with pewter before, but never any high-melt metals

Haven't done anything yet, but if you look at the how-to's on the internet it doesn't look THAT hard.
