I'm definitely liking this one...I've been wanting to work metal into my pieces and just haven't gotten around to it yet...maybe after the holidays I'll jump into it.

What did you use to create the texture?

i used an awl to draw all the lines and dots. even though its a little hard on the fingers, it's pretty easy to do. i just hold it like a pencil.

there is a company that puts out different colored metal sheets as well as copper, brass, and aluminum. i think you can get some of it from michaels.

I've seen them, I think.

I think we also have a roll of copper lying around the house someplace from another abandoned project.

what is the image?  did you paint it on or cut it out from a book, or something along those lines?

sorry, but this is gorgeous and i have a professor who would absolutely adore it.

i got the image from a prayer card i have. (i usually get these at the missions, but they are also available at catholic gift stores)

the picture is decoupaged to a piece of balsa, with a layer of decoupage on top as well.

then i shaped the metal, and folded the edges around the wood and they sort of just stay there, so the metal is not glued to the wood.

thanks for the lovely comments  Smiley
