After quite a long work, I've finished to cut the matrix that I'll use for the embossing in my forthcoming work.

The text uses the runic alphabet, each line is 1.5cm high, more information on it when the next step will be over...

Being inspired by the filigree pattern used in my latest initial, I decided to reuse it to create a small illumination, this time with ferro-gallic ink and wallnut stain to remain close to the shade of the kraft paper.

Initial C

A recent happy occasion "forced" me to take my nib and to make one of those filigree initials I like so much.
It's to celebrate the birth of a little girl and after rejecting the pink, I eventually chose the white.
Here is a picture of a part of the initial where one can see the shiny texture of the letter (which I love !).

And another picture which reveals my industrial secret, in other words, the draft ;-)
