thin tin H

A new initial on zinc, this time an H.

Still don't know what to do with the first one, got to continue thinking about it.
In case you have an idea, don't hesitate to leave me message :-)

Embossing & carbon

A new work in progress with a sentence by Blaise Pascal.

Still some work to do but interesting effect.

Yesterday morning, before sunset, the moon was shining in the sky as thin crescent and the obscured part was also visible in a shade of deep grey.

but it was very cold outside and I didn't have my coffee yet, so here is the result :-)

I didn't edit this picture, it's the real view I had while opening the curtains this morning. Kind of apocalyptic sky :-)

The country of death - final version

The first version of this book title being rejected for legibility reasons, here is the final version of the title which will be printed on the cover of the book.

For all that, my first try will not be lost as it will be used as the internal title of the book.

White vine

I collected some details of white vine (flowers and leaves) in 16th century manuscripts.

I find it easier to refer to this kind of document than to have to look through many books every time I'd like to draw a border or an initial using this type of adornment.

The file is to be found in the resource page of my website

Initial on zinc - first try completed

Here is the final version of the adornment for my little initial B.

It's not bad but I don't like it, the letter seems to be lost in there and there's not enough contrast.
I'll have to try something else

Initial on zinc - next step

A first attempt to decorate my initial with white filigrees on a black paper background.

I fixed temporarily the initial with a piece of adhesive so as to be able to create several versions.
