Autum Leaves

This piece of work incorporates yet another new method of creating art. This is called Embossing. Various items are dipped into emblossing power which has been heated at around 170 degrees. The powder becomes liquid metal and dries with a shine.
I prepared the background using handmade papers and hessian, then acrylic waxed a leaf as a base plate. I dipped various leaves,feathers and other artifacts into the powder and embellished the piece of work together with amber beads.

Size Height 16 inches or 41cm
