Don't Sacrifice Art... It's A Bad Idea

Don't Sacrifice Art... It's A Bad Idea

Posted by Merc on 7/26/2010
 Featured by Lear on 7/26/2010
I made this piece for a friend of mine on a request. This is a sherlock dry that can work as a natrual perc. Word up to Abe, I used rust and garnet for the primary color and garnet for the secondary, plus star white and red exotic for the antler of the dagger. I used butterscotch for the hilt with a jet black cap for the bowl. Silver aqua made an appearance for the superior vena cava. Took about thirteen hours. The dagger is suppost to be an antler on a hilt, which gave it the name as a dagger such as that seems sacrificial. As ussual the name seems to be a double entendre. Hope you enjoy!!!

Peace,
Merc
