Black vine

Work in progress, a "white vine" on metal. I just drew the lines on the varnish, now have to remove the varnish (long & difficult task) before putting the plate in the acid.

And I ask to myself : isn't it better to leave it as it is ? I like it this way ...

Filigree power

I introduce a new design of decorated initials. Around the skeleton of the letter, I organize the decoration and then review the drawing of the letter for it to match the shape of the filigrees. It has something of stained glass pattern and above all a taste of decadent gothic, I like it :-)

Man hole cover

Those of you who follow me on facebook already know about my appetence for man hole cover pictures. I've decided to recreate these graphic objects into more portable shapes, here is a pic of the first step of the creation of a pattern on zinc that will be used to emboss a paper in order to create a man hole cover design.

I don't know whether the final thing will be worth it but I already love this pic, don't you ?

Valentine's day

2 little works related to this feast

the love dice, to know whether (s)he still loves you (I've cheated a bit, there's a heart engraved on each side).

And an initial V

Happy Valentine's day to all lovers and all the others !!

After a few tries on embossing using carbon paper with a basis of engraved zinc plate, I told to myself that something could be done mixing the two.

Far from being a success (both the engraving & the embossing are quite badly done) but nevertheless an encouraging first try.

No time for the moment to work on calligraphy, so here is just a pic of a paper used as a blotter while cleaning a piece of engraved zinc.

Makes a nice abstract pic, doesn't it ?
