Artist Betty Spooner
is a Christian artist and sculptor who specializes in painting biblical scenes and sculpting hand-cast bas relief
Bible scripture artwork.
is a method of sculpting which has been used for centuries and entails carving or etching away the
surface of a flat piece of stone or metal. The word is derived from the Italian
which literally means raised contrast.
In a similar way, Christian artist Betty Spooner also uses hand-made
papyrus, bark, or pulp (formed with the natural "deckle edge" intact) as a substrate for
her hand-cast originals. The substrate used in her artwork is hand-made of heavy fibers and is
formed using a molding process so a scripture verse can be cast into it. After the substrate has dried,
it is then hand-painted, finished in a multi-step process, custom matted, and professionally framed in
a specially selected frame. Then the art piece (unique in color and character) is individually wrapped in foam and cardboard
before being packed in a heavy cardboard outer box for shipping.
