After I finished embossing this piece, I wanted to bring some blood reds in, so after the heart and corner details were patinated and polished, I painted in layers of luscious, deep, intense plum colour, swirling in thinners to create pools and washes of ‘blood’ over the curves and recesses of the heart. The finished heart looks like it’s resting in an ornately decorated, blood-filled specimen dish.
