How to Make a Fire Demon: Part Two

I decided to make my little silver Calcifer into an earring so I soldered an earring post onto the back of the silver shape.
After filing, sanding and polishing him using a barrel polisher, he was very shiny indeed and I used Liver of Sulphur to oxidize the tiny dots in his eyes. It is a liquid which bled a little around the edges that I wanted to keep silver so I then used a very sharp scribe to scratch at the surface around the black pupil of the eye to keep the oxidized part to that small raised area.
Another quick polish and he was ready to wear!
