Purple Emperor paper weight

Purple Emperor paper weight
Love this


A paper weight in Marble with a Purple Emperor butterfly design painted in acrylics.
The Marble is first cut to size and the corners rounded on the wet grinder, next it is placed on the flat lap which used with loose grit produces a matt, clean surface on which to paint.
The butterfly is left to dry and harden then given a clear coating to protect it.
The Purple Emperor only shows the purple in the male, and then only depending on the angle of view, rather like Labradorite rock.
78x64 mm x20 mm thick.


At the start I wanted to paint natural stones but the coast where the nice waterworn smooth ones grow was a long way to go with my car in dock, I did however have some Marble slab in stock and decided to cut that and make paper weights.
