Swampert Aesthetic ; Second Place Prize for @mimoitei
Swampert is a bipedal Pokémon. It is very strong, with enough power to easily drag a boulder weighing more than a ton, batter down opponents, and swim faster than a jet ski. It has powerful vision, enabling it to see even in murky water. Swampert also has the ability to predict storms, sensing subtle differences in the sounds of waves and tidal winds with its fins.
Here are two flame-colored titanium scale bracelets I’ve made relatively recently. I usually don’t think to post the small things I make, because they often don’t feel exciting to me. I do always love making these, though. Seeing what colors I get out of the hot metal is always fun. A bit nerve-wracking, because I’ve definitely had a couple times when I got too much oil from my fingers on the scales and the fingerprints showed up on the final piece. Whoops. I always like when I get a good mix of colors through rose and blue. The hotter the metal gets, the closer it goes to a clear faint blue. So I have to heat it evenly in the flame and try not to overdo it.
