Iron Work, Paper Work...
I started with sketches done on my usual 1/4" square paper.
Granted, the sketches are very rough... Basically, I needed shape and size.
I went with the shape of the hinge. The plate and handle got reshaped as I went.
I added some extra details with a mechanical pencil and will probably do some more sculpting with my stylus as I start working on the stones.
The plate for the latch is completely different from the drawing. I went with a longer narrower shape and put a keyhole at the top.
It's hard to see in the photo, but it's there.
More stonework to do. I want to get it done, so that I can start the inside. I am determined to have this done before Christmas.
Everybody stand back. I may be throwing things right and left before I am done.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
