zinc

Still no time for real work, this time I decided to make two little broochs instead of magnets.



I take the occasion to tell you about Monique who decided to create cadel initials on zinc after she discovered them on my website. With no information from me on the technique, she managed to get quite good results!



If you are also interested in zinc engraving, please send me pics of your works, I'm sure that all together we can improve this technique.

blue vine

A small initial decorated with white vine, I'm happy with the shape of the vine but the gilding was difficult, I don't practise enough.




Magnetsss

Really no time to do anything worth it nowadays. I just continue to recycle bits of metal by creating magnets, here is what I did these last weeks.



Next ones will be more calligraphy/typography-oriented, in short, with some text

G comme Galet

Sorry for the title but it only works in french, it would make no sense to say G like the first letter of peeble :-)
Anyway, weekends are short nowadays which means I don't really have time to create new things, just to copy things I already did using other media.
A few days ago, I told you about a cadel letter on zinc, I copied it today but this time on a schist peeble, engraved by hand.

another 40

The problem when you are 40 is that a lot of your friend are too :-)
Third birthday card on the topic, I'm starting to miss inspiration ;-)


I have to say that I still use the same standard technics, ferro-gallic ink & wallnut stain, filigrees, ... does not help
