We started by looking at all the different things you could get out of embossing how things work, such as you can't emboss words that are too small, definitely nothing below 10point as it wont be clear, the negative space in the letters, for example the counter in the 'e' would disappear and it just wouldn't work. I decided to do this workshop as embossing is something I have never done before and wanted to try out. It is good to know about embossing as if I want to use it for a piece of design in the future, I will know how long it takes and what to do, also the best methods to do it.
Here are some examples of embossing and the pates used;
Although the actually embossing doesn't take very long to do, the process of making the actual plate take a very long time, therefore it makes you wonder if it is worth it. The effect that it creates is something like no other, although there are different, quicker methods of doing this, for example you could use the laser cutter and then emboss that, this means the process would be a lot quicker are more practical, it also is a better method of embossing for certain things. This is a process I will be using as I think that it is worth it.
