Oooooooh! That is GORGEOUS Viza!
Thanks Annie. I really love Japanese black lacquered writing boxes with gold powder and inlays, they served as my inspiration for this piece.
this has a very art deco feel to itbeautiful! i really like your work
This is amazing! I'd love to know your process!
Thanks. I does look very art deco. I am working on a woodblock of the chrysler building as well that will have silver leaf. Linda my process is simple but very time consuming. I carved out the white lines with a gouge then printed with black oil-based ink. let dry. then paint sizing between the lines and apply the leafing. sometimes it sticks to places it shouldn't and i just gently scrap it off with a knife.
What an effective print! Love the results, and thanks for explaining your process.
This is stunning. Viza. You make it sound easy with the leaf application but, having tried it myself, I know it's very difficult and time consuming.
