Paper Casting

I was looking for a method to create beautifully detailed covers for my Book os Shadows, and I happened along this web site while searching for tree references for another project.

The Artist's name is Kevin Dyer, and the process is called paper casting. It excites me because I have always wanted to take the two dimensional material and use it in a three dimensional form. The process requires intiracate carving onto a wax block to create the prototype image. Dyer has absolutely detailed skill in carving out those celtic borders in some of his pieces.

Very rarely does a work excite me. Kevin Dyer's work excites me!
