I have always liked the look of fossils. The details, textures, and colors. So I thought I would make my own. What better subject, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Hammered metal with a copper acid wash. Metal frame.
This is a hammered sheet steel piece. After drawing the image onto the metal, I then trace the lines with a chisel to set the steel and to also see the drawing of the back side from which I hammer it. Depending on what the design dictates, I use patinas, paints or plate with copper. It is then clear coated for durability.
