Metal Embossing

Embossed Design using Gold Plated Aluminium

Thank you for sharing!

 

Gold plated aluminium is embossed with a mandala design using easy metal embossing techniques. Check out our beginning embossing series.

 

I have been pretty busy at work these last few weeks so I have been unable to post anything new. Thankfully I had a day off today and I couldn’t think of a better way to relax and enjoy myself than pulling out some metal and embossing something. . .anything.  This beautiful gold mandala is embossed using easy metal embossing techniques.

I recently purchased a roll of gold-plated aluminium and it was finally time to give it a try.

I printed this pattern from on-line:

One of the things I love about embossing is that one pattern can have many different looks depending on how you decide to emboss it.

Unfortunately, I was having so much fun finally being able to actually work on a project, that I failed to take additional pictures of the process for those who may be interested.  I’ll try to do better next time.

Not sure if I will attach this work to something or put it in a frame.   It is about the size of a small salad plate.  But no doubt, I will find the perfect place for it.

Happy Crafting!

    Another gorgeous piece! I don't know the first thing about metal embossing, but I know that all the projects you've shared are lovely. I'd love to see more of the process.

    This is so cool, Laurie! I'm the same way about pictures sometimes, but it's hard when you're having fun. 🙂
