I've still been playing with metal, and I wanted to answer a couple of your questions from my last post. I like to use a 36 gauge metal, which is pretty much the weight of all the different types of embossing metal out there. Amaco sells it in different shades and different kinds of metal that you can find HERE. It's not real costly, especially if you just want to experiment. I found a large roll at Nasco--I'm not sure if they still have it, but I hope they do, because I'm running low. And I also want to mention that you can cut it with regular household scissors. And one more question was how do I adhere it. I use extra heavy gel medium and it will stick to anything--you just need to burnish down the sides of the metal to the surface that you're adhering it to.
Okay--so I've been running around here like crazy this week trying to get some more art in before I leave (later on today)
I really love how vibrant the colors are on the metal.
I had been finding these religious medals this summer at sales, knowing that one day I would find the perfect piece for them!
I've also been using some of my faces for collage again--
When I use my faces, they seem to tell me how to finish the piece. These came together very quickly.
So, I'm leaving for my show--I have to say that I need a little break--all I'll have to worry about when I get back is Christmas--I LOVE Christmas!!
