I haven't done this in a while--embossing on metal, and I forgot how fun and kind of therapeutic it is. So just a quick little blog post to show you my latest pieces--
first I made my little 'tiles' on these ecoart boards--these are perfect for adhering the metal on to. And they all came together on this gallery canvas--
Next, I made a whimsy-type house--
but this time I adhered the metal on to very thick fun foam that I cut into the roof and house shape--this was a fun piece
And then.....I got out my paints--
I just use regular artists' acrylic paints--multiple coats, and a workable fixative with gloss varnish for a finish---not supposed to use regular paints on metal, but I do!
Back to more embossing--
And I'm still playing with metal, but slowly--lots of real-life stuff going on right now, not to mention that my first show of the season starts this weekend (finally!)--looking forward to it.
I do want to mention that I have a tutorial on metal embossing HERE.
Try it!--it's really not that hard, and if you have any questions, my email is at the top of my sidebar--I love helping other artists.
