Carpe diem

I wanted to use rust in conjunction with engraving. It's now done with this short quotation from the Odes by Horatius. I think, I'll do other works using this technique, I really like the result.

First, I engraved the slate and second, I added some filings and then waited for rust to do its job. Once happy with it, I varnished the whole to freeze the development.

You can see another detail here, to see the whole work, it's there.
