Brass repousse of knotwork in a circle. I drew it on paper first to make sure the design would work ok, then did it in Brass. The brass piece is 6" wide and is mounted on a piece of slate. I used acid and bluing chemicals to darken the background of the brass to give it contrast. Some of my family's roots are from Denmark and even though I have other blood in me, I've always felt a strong connection to the Nordic world and its people but this is the first good knotwork I've done in metal.
Here is a link with some info and photos about how repousse is done. [link]
Thanks to the talented artist Cedarseed [link]
for her excellent guide that helped me to understand an easy way to do the layout of this kind of work in circles. I've been going around in circles all my life, now circles finally make sense!
I'm sorry that I'm unable to reply to all comments nowadays but I do appreciate them. Thank you for looking and for the kind comments!
