This week I experimented with some perforated metal that I have had for a few months. You can see it peeking out in the pendants shown here. Frankly, I don't remember where I got the sheet. It is brassy in color but that is just a paint surface. I like the effect when I sanded some of the paint away, leaving a worn, bi-metal look. It has these tiny holes in straight lines with larger holes in between like a grid. I cut on the tiny holed line with scissors and it left a postage stamp sort of edge which I really like. It is both delicate and industrial at the same time. I paired the metal with a resin coated square and an antique watch face that I painted with alcohol inks and one of the resin coated washers from last week to make the pendant above.
