Past weekend i've spend making a chess set. The reason for it is that in a few weeks time i'll be going to Guild School (i'm so excited again, yah!! :))), and one of the classes i'll be taking is a painting class with Mary Grady O'Brien. She'll be teaching us paint techniques and styles on a game table made by Mark Murphy. At the end of the week there's always a short display of all class results and i figured it would be fun if it would be staged with an actual chess set?
They're turned out of round acrylic stock, 2,7 mm in diameter. The advantage of acrylic material is it takes a lot of detail and can be polished to a high sheen.
ps. poke on any picture to open it a new screen. It will let you zoom in for more detail.
