Just finished this gift for a friend. The Action Comic #1 image gets used a lot, and rightly so, but I am more of a glass artist, so I engraved it on a piece of recycled mirror. I like the looked, but it lacked the impact I was hoping for. The finished product is truly mixed media. The bold reds come from alcohol ink painted in the engraving. The subtler colors show through the engraving from a color print behind it. The “man of steel” needed a suitable frame, so “rub n buff”, which I learned about from helpful GF users , gave a Goodwill scarred black frame metallic look. I love using my GF in my glass art.
Nice! The extra work you put into that really makes it pop!
I’m out of likes but you deserve one
Here, use one of mine.
That came out fantastic. Great job.
I’m thinking that might look cool cut out of actual steel…hmmmm
I started off thinking wood. Then glass. So metal would be the next logical progression.
Really cool. I like how you added just a “pop” of color. Thanks for sharing.
