Making Prizes For the Best

Posted on July 6, 2012 by team

Russians like to compete, either in sport or music or anything else. And the best ones get prizes, of course. These prizes are made somewhere. You may suppose they are made abroad, but not all of them. There is a place in Russia where different prizes are made. Here we gonna see how they produce a prize of Muz-TV (popular musical TV channel).

Fixing it on the machine

Profile of the future plate

A brass plate is mounted on it with an instrument looking like a harpoon to press a plate out.

Making the edging of the plate

The inscription on the plate is made with sand. They stick a film on the plate so that only the inscription remains. It is processed with sand stream to have the matte inscription. The ball is covered with the film depicting continents, then it is covered with ferric chloride to get a relief on the ball as the result.

On the photo: the ball and the plate ready for the procedures.

After the sand processing the film is carefully removed.

      FYI: wedding rings go on the right hand in Russia and in some neighboring countries. Sorry to ruin your hopes.

    The sponsors said that this was the last ceremony they ever hold because of the scandal on this year’s nomenation and lack of respect from singers to the efforts of people organizing this event.
