I knit a thin gauged wire, copper or silver, into a metal fabric often up to twice its final size. Layers of various metal leaf are added using mostly precious metals such as 24 karat gold, palladium and platinum just to name a few. Creases, folds, crumbling or embossing, will texture the tapestry. Before its final mounting to a backing the different panels are sewn together. A secure french cleat hanging makes for an easy and safe installation.
