I started my project by creating a model. To create the model, I used two thin pieces of wood. One of the pieces was a rectangle, and the other was the head and effects. I then pressed my wooden model into a sand mold, that was eventually filled with brass. With the brass metalwork, I used a file, a variety of sandpaper, and a buffing machine to finish my project.
