Filigrees and puzzle

Here are two small letters just out of the workshop.
I am reinterpreting the filigree puzzles as I will present them at the Abbey of Maredret during a workshop organized by Interligne in March 2022.

Here we read the first name in the cut of the vertical shaft of the letter, with gilding for the counter shape of the final E.

And here I am having fun with a flower shape that comes to “eat” the letter and decorate it at the same time with copper leaf gilding.

Happy birthday !!

Today is my wife’s birthday.

As I didn’t know what to give her, I started to create a new currency (kisses) and I started with a big banknote, 1 million !

Cashable only with me and in nature 🙂

The photo is printed (yes, I know, I should have done it by hand but that’s one of the many things I don’t know how to do).

Gold leaf for the control strip and the dot of the i, embossing for the number, everything else is done in watercolor, different dilutions of Payne’s grey.

Blue circle

I had a leftover blue, so I took a piece of paper and filigree. The circle in the center  is about 2.5cm in diameter.

And I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you that there are still a few places left for the online course on filigree that will take place this weekend. During this course we will discuss the elements present in this little realization.

Puzzled versals

 It is often difficult to find compositions to enhance a short sentence or a single word.
Luckily, there are solutions!

You are a star !

I’m offering a class on puzzle versals and how to use them for small compositions.

It will take place on November 13th & 14th, more information and registration on this page.

And don’t forget, we are all stars!

Online filigree courses

i ‘m doing a small series of filigree letters again, a little bigger than usual and with some gilded dots.

This is the occasion to announce 2 online courses on filigree.

The first one, in English, will take place on September 25 and 26, it is the first course of the series.

The second one, in French, will take place on October 9 and 10, 2021, it is called filigree 2 but can be taken without having done the first one, they are 2 courses of the same level.

You will find more information and links for registration on this page.

And I leave you with my last creations, have a nice sunday 🙂
