My son came home with a little plastic ruby that he found on the playground. He wanted me to make something with it. I was picturing the Mummy movie and the beetles in it. Cane up with this. Proofgrade walnut plywood. I left the masking on the beetle. I thought it looked neat. I’m sure it will fall off eventually.
Could have really used a bunch of those at the Egyptian Archaeological Dig party I threw one year.
Yeah, that’s not quite the image I had for you.
Chuckle! Need to see if I can find the afterparty pic…
Or maybe you meant the new Mummy movie that I pretend doesn’t exist. No Brendan Fraser? Not interested.
Most excellent use of random found jewel… just hope it doesn’t awaken a mummy with a curse LOL
Hmm…I was expecting Cleopatra and the dance of 7 veils
Something along the lines of this perhaps? (Us gals took our partying seriously back then.)
(That’s not me, that was one of the guests at the party. I had a pith helmet and tools.)
Sorry, Phil…will quit threadjacking now…you accidentally triggered a trip down memory lane.
Don’t we all.
@DesignsByPhil The masking peeling off can make it more weathered.
Wow … pretty cool accent for a found item!
This is so fabulous! What a great thing to be able to find a trinket and turn it into a treasure.
Ummm… Thanos is looking for you…
(Looks great ! btw)
I love these postings where people turn a found object into something fabulous. Great recycle!
I’d be very careful of uttering any words in an ancient Egyptian language. This looks powerful enough to cause some serious magic if not used carefully.
Side note: and discourse is seriously lacking in hieroglyphs and Egyptian emojis.
