    Default What would you call this style?

    Here are pics of some doodles in mild steel.
    Pics don't do the bright cut justice, but they are coming along nicely.
    My question is what should I say this style is like?
    Any guesses?

    It is quite like the inverted leather carving of Al Stohlman in the 60's...

    It's got a bit of a 'floral flare' happening, quite interesting.

    I don't know the name of the style but it's pleasant to look at.

    Usually called Flare Cut. I've never cut the style so I'm not that familiar but I think Diane Scalese has done some tutorials so you might look up her work.

    I like it, it's different, not run of the mill cookie cutter looking.

    Thanks for the kind words, I've been playing with it trying to give the leaves some 3D effect without background cutting.
    More of a free flow, Japanese ink painting type without too much pre planning.

    Unfortunately our friend master engraver Jean Diet is not amongst the living anymore , he was like the Wikipedia of engraving styles,
    maybe another Liège engraver can jump in on this one, but I think he first picture goes very much in the direction of " Louis Doize Style"
    celle la etait pour toi Jean, vous nous manquez

    Check out Roger Bliele, as he does a fantastic "flare" cut.
