Metal, Paper and Wax - FINAL RESULTS

July 31, 2013  •  1 Comment

©2013 Kim Tinuviel, www.kimtinuviel.com_DSC0029 I'm really pleased with the results of this experiment with metalwork. These lanterns are not yet titled, but they are constructed of steel and copper with encaustic (beeswax) and mixed media on mulberry paper. They are each 24" tall and 10" diameter and lit by a lo-temp 60-watt candle bulb.

My sister Jody and I wanted to create something collaboratively, and decided to do it in metal. I love mixed metals and already work with encaustics, so the goal became to combine these diverse media into something dynamic. To complete the project, we needed to learn to weld. Our thanks go to Greg Bartol and Ed Vesser at Green River Community College. These guys are GREAT!

Now that we have these metalworking skills, you can expect more creative pieces in the future. Enjoy these photos of the process and the products!
