Spinning globe sit atop a black marble base that we sand carve.
We sand carve these awards (similar to sand blasting but with very fine grit and nozzles) from behind, leaving the front smooth. It makes for a lovely deep etch that has depth and clarity. We can paint fill the etching but we think it reduces the 3D look.
Can be paint filled (silver metallic looks particularly nice here) Comes in nice presentation (shown with different product)
