Mixing Metals

Lately I have been working with digitally printed metals for collage.  Printing recycled printer plates gives me a surface somewhat larger than my beverage cans to use as a base.  Combining other printed metals like metal mesh, beverage cans, wire and found rusty items makes a good mix for dimensional collage.  The pieces here are small and studies to enlarge as I work with metal.  Planning a new 24" x 48" page for one of my large books will start with a base of printed metal pieces then building other 3d elements to build the final page.
