A Copper Watering Can
I finished the thread painting of the copper watering can today. I started it last week before we left but didn't get very far. This was the results of about five hours of work today.
This is not a one day or even a one week project that I'm working on now. However, I think it will be worth the time.
This is a closer view of the watering can. I really enjoyed choosing the threads to achieve the patina of old copper.
I used some green, red, and multi colors of golds and browns. I have a meeting tomorrow and it's not likely that I will get much done on this piece but, I have set aside the rest of the week and hope to really see some difference in the left side of the piece by the end of the weekend.
