A modern abstract design transferred onto fine art paper by hand embossing, with hand painted ink colours. This process involves the pressing of paper fibres gently from the reverse of the paper through a template designed specifically for this purpose, which results in a raised pattern on the front. In this case it is the surrounding negative space that is raised, thus making the pattern itself sunken.
This image is embossed on offcuts of high quality textured Somerset printmaking paper, making use of materials that would otherwise be discarded. These offcuts are perfect on the front but may have the occasional blemish on the back, totally invisible on the front.
