Embossing

13c-partial-reflection_0

 

Embossing is using magnesium, brass or copper dies to create a relief image on different substrates, including paper, leather, textiles and wood. Combining a metal die with a counter-die under heat and pressure, results in a single, multi-level or three-dimensional raised image. Elaborate three-dimensional designs come to life through engraving, whether done by hand or computer.
