Default New page: plaque made using lost foam...poured in brass

I sent my new page out a while ago to my e-zine subscribers and
thought I would share it with you too. It is a plaque I did using
lost foam. Here is the address:

Well done, both the plaque and the presentation and videos.

What brass did you use? If scrap, did the potential lead content and
fumes give you some concern?

Very nice. Too bad the rabbit wasn't just a hare lower. groan
(I have a history in graphic design so I'm a picky SOB.

I really like the grounding pattern (background) and your choice of
patinas. How did you achieve the grounding texture? It's nice and
coarse. Just perfect to make the foreground stand out. Kudos.
