Trunk part 2

 

Trunk part 2, originally uploaded by Black Heart Industries.

In the center is my monogram, just finished by hand, no computer was used. It was then photocopied, reduced and combined with a clip art cartouche. I then applied the silver Color Tag foil. The paper was them inked black. This is less then adequate. Also, the silver needs too much light to work properly. I endeavored to do this correctly so I bought some black 8.5 x 11 paper and made more copies. I then used fluorescent red. It looks more pink then red. All were then spayed with matte sealant. The two on either side of the monogram will be cut and glued to pieces of wood, as will be shown. Color tag was made by Letraset in the early 1990s. Computers killed Letraset rub on letters and this great product. You just place the foil on a photocopy and apply heat with an iron. It came in a myriad of pantone colors, including metallic.
