Create in Acetate

As I was already worried about how my resin pieces were going to turn out and I was having to wait for them to set I decided to do some more work with acetate.
I’m very glad I did now!
IMG_7475These pieces are made from more acetate that I printed my coloured photos of the rusty metal onto. This time though I used aluminium tape on the back. The aluminium tape is nowhere near as nice or as strong, by itself, as the copper tape but it worked very well on the back of the acetate, especially against the blue. IMG_7477My idea for these pieces came from discovering Stephanie Hopkins‘ work. Beautiful!
IMG_7478I did try this idea with the rusty metal itself but it was simply too tough and didn’t work.IMG_7481I have now made these pieces and more acetate creations into jewellery which you will be able to see once the exhibition goes up. I’m not going to spoil the surprise!
