The lettering was first drawn on paper then traced onto carbon paper in order to create a mirror image. The shape was cut out of thick aluminium foil and the mirror image lettering laid onto the back of it. Then a biro was used to press over the lettering and design to emboss the image onto the shiny side of the foil. Black ink was applied, polished off and colour was added with marker pens. The whole image was polished gently to further highlight the embossing.The foil was mounted onto balck or grey card.
