Family Crest

This was an unusual commission for a family crest for a mixed race family.

So there are both British and Indian elements. The centre of the shield is filled with henna patterns for which I used sepia ink. The " mantling" is in purple and gold. I used the Schminke Aqua-bronze in rich gold which has a real shine that is difficult to see on screen. Drawing the henna patterns was time consuming but I really enjoyed putting this together and, happily, the customer was delighted.
