I continue to play with man hole covers. Here is an embossing made with a new design, I used wallnut stain & ferro-gallic ink to imitate the color of the cast iron.


  1. But you haven't actually got Anne stopping traffic while you crawl around on the pavement with a big burnishing tool (spoon back?) and some relatively thick handmade paper...or get yourself some really smooth tyres and just drive back and forth over the paper...

  2. no I didn't :-)
    instead, I took pictures & then recreate the design on a quite small scale (this one is 7cm)
    And I don't have spoons that are big enough to test your solution :-D
