Marking out the ellipses for the backplate

The ellipses are marked out on the gilding metal plate. This is the same metal that I used for making the enamel cross and I've quite a bit of it left over from that project. The gilding metal is a low Zinc brass and has a nice reddish colour that will complement the more yellow tint of standard brass.
