Metal Embossing

This beauty is one of my creative loves - metal embossing.  Done in layers, I first painted the wood with those nice flowing textures. Once I embossed the metal I gave it that nice patina and laid it on the wood. Once set I put a layer of heavy gel over all as a sealant, and drew textures to echo the metal and signed my name into the gel, so this piece actually has a double signature, seen and unseen. The finishing touch was the turquoise patina around the edges of the wood to bring it all together.  Rich and deep!

This piece is on cradled wood and is approximately 12”x12”.  It’s on my website,
