It's simple to create intricate designs on metal--and impart luster, radiance, and dimension--with the centuries-old art of embossing. This in-depth workshop explains it all: tracing and transferring patterns, cutting designs from the metal and attaching them to a surface, filling in, adding color and patina, finishing and varnishing, and texturizing. Novices will find out how to use a wide variety of tools and products, and follow a project being made from start to finish through close-up images. An entire photographic section showcases a range of embossing designs, with their richly diverse textures. The projects--all with full-size patterns--include frames and framed designs, boxes, clocks, glass items (vases, decanters), and jewelry.Muldoon, Magdalena S. is the author of 'Metal Embossing Workshop', published 2008 under ISBN 9781402753855 and ISBN 1402753853.
