Well I thought I would bring everyone up to speed. I met with the client and we talked and she want me to do an ambigram using her boy friend name . I worked on it all after noon and I think I have the general idea how to do it. I mapped it out and I have the basics already. When I refine the letters I will post the ruff draft. The name I am trying to make into an ambigram is Terry Jones. I will be doing on a earth color vellium and use a gold metalic ink. Then I think I am going to use a gold embossing powder over it. I think I am going to use a rust colored vellium if I can find it.

If I can not find rust colored vellium does anyone have any ideas for an alternate earth color that would go good with gold embossed ink? The client also wants it to be able to fit in an 8"X 10" frame. I am also asking for $25 for this project. Does that sound like a fair price. I have until the first of July to complete the project so I have some time. So any ideas that anyone has would be appreciated.

Congrats, Brian! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Not sure if the pricing is right... seems like you may be selling yourself a bit short. But how exciting!

Can't wait to watch it develop!

... I think I am going to use a rust colored vellum if I can find it.
Have you tried Marco's Paper? http://www.marcopaper.com/catalogoptions.htm They certainly make it difficult to shop online, but I bet they've got vellum in the color you want. You can order a sample book of all their vellums for about $4 here (scroll to the bottom): http://www.marcopaper.com/newitems.htm

These are the vellums used in contemporary crafts and bookbinding, tho, and may not be the kind you have in mind.
