( Deutscher Text folgt unten ! ) I am happy to present you today the first LUNA "Silvermoon" made of nickel silver. The constant further development of the LUNA Handpan also includes the testing of new materials in cooperation and collaboration with my metal turning shop in Germany. This time it is a very special and for Handpan rather unusual material, namely nickel silver. Nickel silver is a copper nickel zinc alloy. The special thing about Handpan construction is that copper alloys are...

The Yin Mei Scale is LUNA-Scale wich is a Minor aeolian Hexatonic, with a very distinctive mystical flavor. It evokes images of mystic nights, of space, stars and the moon - the hidden origin of everything. Its character is obscure and dreamlike, but still keeps balance because of the missing minor third. The design was applied with gold powder and was special requested to make this handpan an individual beauty. Thanks to Xing Cen for this request - it was a pleasure to build this Handpan for...

This is a new kind of Urushi, I used for the first time. I ordered it from japan. It took slightly longer to dry, but the very smooth and glosy surface is worth it. This LUNA stays in germany - thank you Armin !

This is a LUNA I build for a costumer who wanted a more organic and not to “perfect” surface. In the light you can see the nice flowing of the different layers upon each other wich creates a very organic, wood-like optic. Thanks for the request, Arthur!

This Luna is pre grinded after the last heating process. This is done, after the last heating process, but before fine tuning, since the grinding detunes the instrument. The reason for grinding is because this one was requested in fire-red laquering. Since the metall starts to oxide in the process of heating, the coroding layer darkens the surface of the metall. After grinding the light steel appears again, wich is neccesary for the used Kijomi Urushi to appear in a cherry-reddish color and...

Finally I did it. This picture was a lot of work, even if it may not look so. There are lots and lots of layers of soft grey washes done here. It may not reach the hundred-mark, but I am sure there are about 60-80 layers. For those who are interested in, I managed to remind my self of taking some work in progress pictures... so here they are:

Thanks to STelari for her suggestion! I really was surprised how much feedback I got after the suggestion of my painting "Muse of the solitude" as Daily Deviation. It really works as kind of a catalyst for my trie to stepping onto the way of an artist. Thank you so much, and thanks to the community of deviant-art. Greetings, Sebastian
