Hi All

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.

Very nice! I love the nature-y rustic feel of the leaves and the colours.

I would really love to see these in action, but they're lovely nonetheless.
