I sound like a broken record but the colors that come out of the kiln on the original bronze never ceases to amaze me. It's the same carbon I have been using for 3+ years. I let it sit out in the open and absorb everything in the laundry room. My reward for this abuse is tons of color.
Of course a lot of it will disappear once I polish these. But an underlayer of color will remain on the textured surfaces.
Holly Gage came to town to teach her repousse class. I decided to work with the coin again. I made it in silver in class and now in bronze. The next thing I want to do in repousse is the stylized horse that was on the other side of this coin.
