ENAMEL EXPERIMENTS

I am still trying out different ways of working in enamel using this concertina book form as a vehicle for my experiments.

I have used my own photographs of early entomological collections making them into enamel transfers.

Then I have sand blasted label shapes and beetles into the enamel surface.

Rust will happen!!

Lovely! The book looks amazing and I'm looking forward to seeing the rust developing. We're getting a bit rusty here at the moment: almost 20 inches of rain in the last week! I feel a bit like the tin man. Sara

I love this, you have a enviable way of developing ideas. I like the pushing around of insect shapes in this little book.

The images appear to be delicate while the book looks sturdy. Love the contrast. How heavy is it?
