ALUMINIUM EMBOSSING


Among the works which i have done this was the most difficult one. Actually difficult because we have to use our strength to give pressure on the tool and emboss the sheet, which i used was bit thick.(The sheets come in different thickness)

MATERIALS:

Aluminium sheet
Embossing tools
Ball pointed pen

Trace of the design
Blanket or cushion
Golden anti rust liquid
Cotton or ear buds
Cello tape
Kerosene.


METHOD:

1)Stick the trace of the design to the four corners of the aluminium sheet using cello tape.
2)Applying force draw the design on the trace. (so that the impression of the design comes out on the sheet )
3)Remove the trace and put dots around the drawn design with the ball pen using force. This dots around the embossed figure will make the art look more attractive.
4)Keep a blanket or cushion under the reverse side of the picture and emboss the picture by pressing hard with the embossing tool. (When it is turned the on the right side, figures will be slightly embossed).
5)When complete, paint the out lines of the pictures with black colour.
6)Dip ear buds in golden anti rust paint and colour. (if the paint is applied thickly it will have a dark appearance. To give lighter shade, mix little kerosene )

Note: Nowadays we get different Anti rust paint comes in different colours.

This one was done using metallic color paint.
