Copper Colored Imagination


"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air- explode softly- and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth- boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either- not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination." ~ Robert Fulghum




Copper Feather Cutting...with tin snips and must not forget the LEATHER GLOVES! Copper is very sharp, but oh, so shiny.


Next in the process: A bit o' tooling and patination. I will keep a picture log of the process.
Still ruminating how to attach to the wing structure; I have a few options and will play with the center at the back of the angel. I also ordered the first of the mosaic tiles for the angel yesterday. Such a fun and exciting process. Thanks for sharing it with me;)
