Rusty letters for September

Phew! Sometimes one just needs a bit of a reminder about one's letters. Anyway this month I had to do all four in one creative sitting - so not quite a letter a week but still on track with a little catch up.



So here are my four for September - I am still engraving Chiller font letters into rusted iron sheeting.




What I have also managed to do is to source and buy five rusted and beaten timber splitting wedges that will become the base for my letters in flight final piece for this second alphabet. As you can see from the original diagram I have changed it a bit in that I am not going to use a single platform but rather the collective wedges.

I can't believe your imagination sometimes...this will be beautiful and I love the rust and the un-rusted letters that emerge from them.
