I’m not a fan of Halloween so I’m already working on the Christmas decoration for my workshop.
Tired of cleaning the windows, I decided to make my decoration on tracing paper which will be taped on the windows, it’s less time consuming to remove than acrylic paint and it’s reusable.
Tag: white vine
All you need is …
I have only been posting works related to my online courses recently. I have to admit that it takes a lot of time.
Nevertheless, with Valentine’s Day approaching, I decided to do something a bit different.
Here is a Roman capital decorated with white vine on a support of patinated copper leaf, the whole being made with acrylic paint.
I take this opportunity to wish you (with a little advance), full of love in this new year.
And, if you doubt my ability to realize a patinated copper foil collage, you are right. It is my wife who made it… All I did was to scribble my Roman capital and its associated Vine over it.
All I need is love and a woman who does great things to help me 😉
Series of failures
Vine – the end
At last, I’ve finished the vine pattern on my steel plate !
I could then etch it, one hour and 60W in salted water.
A short blowtorch passage to burn the paint and reveal the etching and here we are :
Still have to sand the plate a little bit to remove the paint remnants but I already find it quite nice. I hope I’ll be able to keep the blue shade of the etched parts.
I transferred the white vine pattern on a plate of steel (which was a closet shelf in a previous life).
And now I’m scratching the paint to reveal the metal underneath.
As you can see, I use a hightech tool to do that, a sharpened nail with a wood handle.
