Embossed Copper Workshop Photos

This workshop was great fun and as you'll see, the results are creative and varied. Our homework is to finish the two embossed copper covers and bring them to the July workshop where Dolores Guffey will be helping us assemble a book using the covers. Look for the upcoming post regarding her workshop. The photos below will give you an idea of the processes we used for the covers.

Tracing paper is used to copy a design.

The design is then taped to the copper and embossed.

Once the major features are created, further embossing can be done.

Paper stumps are used for larger areas.

Heat is applied for a mottled look.
Inks are applied to highlight recessed areas.

A finished product!
