My name is Gerald Taylor. I am a basic metal engraver and a student of drawing and design. About 9 years ago I took my basic skills and crossed them over to concrete. I use an angle equiped with a diamond blade. I plan on starting back into metal soon.
THe metal cuts have a very simmilar feel to concrete scoring. From the art work I have seen on the forrum. I would like to see some of the same on concrete.
Here's the link to a short tutorial
Thanks Gerald Taylor

Very imaginative Gerald.

Thanks for showing us another aspect of the art. I guess there must be a fair bit of demand for concrete engraving to keep you away from the metal.

Roger I left out I just called it concrete engraving because thats the way the general public percieve this work. IT's really freehand concrete scoring .
I have really benifitted from the forum because my drawing skills have been in a rut. I found out about the Advanced drawing of Scrolls by Ron Smith. Slowly my drawing improving.
Thanks GErald
