Good tip on using the CB to flatten. I usually just cut off top & bottom of the can, cut down one side of the resulting tube & roll the sheet backwards to remove most of the curve.
I cut my tin cans with the tin snips. My DH does have an industrial pair of tin snips for regular cans. I am not touching those, lol.

Wink Metal & more

I'm in a swap where we do medals. All require some image stamping, but otherwise we're free to play with materials & techniques.

My latest is mostly beverage can (aluminum) metal that I stamped (the bird) & machine embossed ('ribbon' & pendant). I embossed the bird (I Brake for Stamps) using a stylus.

I diecut the pendant with a Nestabilities die & used a die from Memory Box for the lattice. That's what I want to share about...

After diecutting the lattice from metal I put it on the adhesive face of regular duct tape. Then I used permanent ink markers & glitter paint to color.

Susan, your piece with the flowers colored in reminds me of something done long ago. We used some clear liquid (can't recall name) and tinted it with very small amounts of dies to get very glassy results on metal surfaces. I also worked copper as a preteen using wood tools like a skewer and a another like a bone folder. We also used some tools that work for tooling leather.

I'm curious as I can't seem to see the duct tape in the holes behind the metal. How did you do that?

That explains why your work is so fine and detailed, Daniel. Thanks fro those ideas too. Wish there was a Youtube of your work with the copper....I actually love metals and don't have enough skills to use them well I rely on embossing folders and die cuts instead of hand tooling!

Hand tooling is going the way of embossing on a light box. People look for faster means of expression.

Yes, I agree. But who makes the faster means of expression possible? Artists
