This website describes English "monumental brasses" and the use of "rubbings" of these brasses to produce silk screen prints, using finely powdered bronze mixed with a clear silk screening ink achieve a brilliant gold color. A rubbing is an impression of the brass made by placing a sheet of architects' drafting paper over the brass and rubbing it with a hard black crayon.  A silk screen print is typically made on dark cloth, in the full size of the original brass monument.  Shown below (L to R) are:
1.) the monumental brass of Sir Roger de Trumpington,  Church of St Mary and St Michael, Trumpington, Cambridgeshire;
2.) a picture of a rubbing of this brass;
