Copper Foil

Jan 2010

Time to carve:0 hours
Metal Work: 1.5 hours
Finishing: 1.5 hours

Thin copper on a scrap piece of pine. The design is something call a Scout Knott which I printed out and glued to the copper. Taking a small blunt nail and tracing the design by taping the nail into the copper foil denting the metal. Once I finished the design I removed the paper. To darken the background I used a black craft paint wash, let it dry, then polished the copper with a paper towel. A couple of coats of poly and a ring glued to the back finish this slide off.
