This month’s featured Rue Morgue Finery is the new cast pewter belt buckle, designed by Ghoulish Gary Pullin. “The company we chose to create the buckles are capable of producing a pewter piece with a lot of detail so I didn’t hold back on the line work,” says Gary. “Simply put, skulls always look cool. Add bat wings and coffins for teeth (I dubbed this design ‘Coffin Teeth’) and now you’ve really got something horror fans will dig. I’m hoping we throw this on a shirt or something sometime soon.”
Check out Gary’s original drawing from which the buckles were cast. All the white areas on the artwork became raised metal and all of the black areas were recessed. This particular manufacturing process is referred to as “blackened and relieved” by AT Designs, the company who helped us turn Gary’s design into these 2″ x 3″ creepy clasps.
