The article looks at the work of artists Joan Morris and Mich&x00E8;le Ratt�. The artists collaborated in 1998 to study the application of metallics to textile surfaces. However, both of their projects did not succeed. With the help of retired chemist Miklos Breuer, they invented a method for adhesion of metal leaves, foils and powders onto substrates resulting in a durable metal coating. They have written and filed a patent application for their invention in the United States. They used the method in creating a series of monoprints and shaped resists with dyes and 23 karat gold.
