Avatar Stones by ChimeraDragonfang Avatar Stones by ChimeraDragonfang
Another one of the "technically been done for a while, but just not baked yet" pieces that I finally ran through the oven for final paint-fusing.

Waterbending symbol is engraved in dumortierite.
Earthbending symbol is engraved in serpentine.
Firebending symbol is engraved in red jasper.
Airbending symbol is engraved in yellow quartz (I think).

Engraved using a Dremel and diamond burr. Lines are filled in with black porcelain paint.

Each stone is 4-5cm across at its widest/longest, and about 6mm thick. The quartz and serpentine are translucent.

These are for sale, but I haven't set a price yet. Note me if interested.

Thanks :la: Red jasper (and possibly other varieties, but so far I have the most experience working with the red kind) is frustrating to engrave because it chews through my burrs like mad compared to most of the other stones I've used, but damn does it ever hold nice smooth lines. It's a bit of a love/hate relationship.

Man I love the texture quality of the stones between the four it just makes the symbols so much more dynamic.

Yeah, I like little patterns in the stones, though sometimes it makes for some minor annoyance when engraving them. I have to keep good control of the Dremel to prevent the bit from haring off if it hits a differently textured or more/less hard part of the stone. The serpentine is nice and smooth (and sooo easy to engrave!), but that dumortierite had some finicky moments.
