Golden gilded beetle – Pressed fern

Another gilded work, with pressed fern gilded in 24k gold. It’s impossible to make prints of these pieces due to the interactive quality of the shiny gold. That makes them more precious but they genuinely have to be seen by the eye.

This is a technique I want to use in my work alot more in the future.

High quality giclée prints of most of my work is available on my store, along with greetings cards and other curiosities here.

Say hi on Twitter or keep up with my work on Instagram

And of course, thank you for looking!
