Most pieces are made from sheets of aluminum but on occasion, copper - thanks to
Sara S. for the donation. ;)
To make them stronger, clear resin is applied to the back. This technique was initiated thanks to Juan V. & has been quite a learning curve.
If colors are part of the design, then a second coat of resin is used to protect them, so they are a bit more expensive and take more time to complete. There’s a slight risk that colors will bleed when the resin is applied or that the back of the piece has some extra resin.
It is definitely a work in process but I continue to grow as an artist and enjoy learning what the medium has to offer. If you own an AlumíA piece and would like to share a photo or comment, please contact me!
