Copper Wall Art UNDER THE SEA II, Engraved on Copper Plate

UNDER THE SEA II, Engraved on Copper Plate.

Copper Wall Art UNDER THE SEA II is a colourful  engraved & hand-painted piece. An underwater scene  of Fish, Shell and Plants has been engraved on copper.

The copper plate has then been mounted on a larger copper square which I painted in bright colours. The fabulous colours have been achieved with alcohol ink.

I have given a renaissance wax polish to the whole piece which will help to maintain the shine.


I did use  stencils for the original patterns that I have engraved. I used an electric hand-held engraving tool and went over the whole piece to get the pattern cut into the metal plate.

To be honest, if I had relied on my drawing skills a freehand sketch could have looked like anything from a squid to an alien!
