The above Laurel Pelican medallions were made for two double-peers, who carry within the SCA a Patent of Arms.  A Laurel, for arts, and a Pelican for service.  The round one was for Dame Richenda Elizabeth Coffin, an embroidery Laurel.  The square one was for Master Thomas Brownwell, a calligraphy Laurel.

They’re illuminated gold and palladium leaf on black vellum.  Adhered with miniatum and instacoll.   Glair (egg white binder) was used to help the paint stick to the metallics.
