I thought I would share the latest things that I have been working on. I started them at the end of the school year and have finished them off at home - I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
The leaves were firstly dried out and then I pressed the leaf and sheet copper through the rolling mill, I then pierced out the shape and the veins on the copper leaf, finally I attached a pin made out of brass wire to the back. I have left the front of the leaves oxidised as I think it adds to the design. I've sealed them all with a laquer to prevent any tarnishing/rub off.
Let me know what you thing c&c welcome.
