wide use of metal embossing technique in the US.

Since 2001 we have achieved surprising results by combining both the decorative painting and the

embossing techniques. They go together in a way that enriches the projects with a volume, movement

and texture never seen before.

 

Vestiges of this art comes from ancient times. Domestic and ornamental objects were made of

metals such as gold, silver and copper. These metals were laminated by heating and then hammering.

Naturally the tools were few and primitive.

 

One of the most appreciated techniques of embossing is the "Icon" making. The icons were used to

represent a sacred image and  the painted figures were covered with laminated metals that were embossed

to create the movement of the robes, legs and arms and to reproduce the ornamental details of the

crowns and backgrounds.
