Miniature painting for the book trade

In addition to his fore-edge work, Martin Frost has also painted many miniatures for the covers of de-luxe 'Cosway' style bindings and paintings under transparent vellum in the Vellucent style.

He has an interest in 'limning', the archaic tradition of manuscript painting, and has been commissioned to produce a number of illuminated miniatures. Quality individual initials are available as are College and family armorial crests. All are hand-painted on vellum using traditional techniques and heightened with gold and palladium leaf.
