‘G’ is for glitter - stamped metal letter

With my first A Letter a Week letter G I have used the heavier gauge brass from the side of an old heavy pot plant holder. The metal is a bit too brittle for foldforming and given that G has curves I have gone for stamping the metal.

Stamping the background with a plumber’s hardened G stamp has enabled the G to stand out and polishing the whole piece with steel wool just makes the G shine. And as is the case with this particular brass if you work it on one particular side you do get a nice curve happening.
