Machining day

A short blog today.
Spent most of today machining the base texture for my Egyptian tile hanging. It is ready to receive its first coat of gesso. I also embossed an Egyptian brooch onto some burnished gold shim. This will sit in the middle of the bottom tile.
I think I will paint it turquoise, blue and jade with the texture lifted by gold leaf paint.
It will look very different to this.

Received a surprise email today. It was from an ex pupil from many , many years ago. I am intrigued to find out how he came across my website which is how it reached me. A web site on embroidery isn't come across during normal surfing.
Will be interesting to find out.
