This Corrosion

Here’s an update on my latest, still untitled sculpture.  I’ve mostly been referring to him as ‘big hat dude’ but I need to come up with a better title than that!

I constructed the head gear out of brass and copper which I soldered together.  I then corroded it using scopas cupra and plumbers flux.  It was quite interesting to see the different colours produced.  The copper almost went blue in places and the circular piece at the top went bright orange.

Here’s a pic before I corroded it.

And here’s a pic of the sculpture once I’d baked the sculpey.  He’s not fully painted yet in this pic although I have done a little airbrushing.
