Cadel research part 2!

This is the updated version of my previous research project where in I tried out a new material for experimentation. The first time I worked on this manuscript reproduction, I used leaf gold because I had surmised that it would probably be done that way. After I dug deeper into things, I realized that shell gold was a good option and that there were hints in the details of the piece to point in that direction. I made a new sample area of both gold and grisaille work to see.

Kolfinna’s Pyxis

Finished scrollOrder of the Pyxis
For Kolfinna Hrafnkelsdottir

The Pyxis is a non-armigerous award given for putting forth great effort at researching, creating and maintaining a period persona and atmosphere. Therefore, I made this scroll to be a pair of temple rings, bearing the badge of the order, that would be period for the recipient.
