Hello all.

I made this a while back. CZ121 brass - 1/4" plate. Despite being on a larger scale than most of what I do, I still needed to use a 0.4mm end mill to get that detailing around some of the letter-forms..!

As usual, it was filled with cold enamel resin (well, half filled - to get that softer/relaxed look where the paint meets the metal) before getting the bejeezus polished out of it.

EDIT: Here's a vid showing some of the manual and CNC stages that went in to making the plaque:

I use the 2-part cold enamel available from Cookson Gold. It's good stuff, but needs to be mixed very accurately - particularly when prepping smaller quantities. Two ways of filling - over-fill and sand back to a flush surface, or (slightly trickier) under-fill to get that sunken look. In either case, flash it with a blow torch to remove air bubbles.
