The wings for my angel sculpture, before being primed.

It was a beautiful, sunny day in Central Michigan, warm enough to spray paint these wings with primer. It says on the Galvanic scale that copper and galvanized steel may corrode if attached and under moist conditions, so I used a "Rustoleum" primer to give them a coating. I will also use pressure sensitive tape where necessary to attach the copper feathers.

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing on another."
~Luciano de Crescenzo

Template for copper feathers finished! The copper has shipped and should be here this week. Will keep you updated on the steps to come!
