Wild Onion Sculpture by Marcusstratus Wild Onion Sculpture by Marcusstratus
I already had a picture of this posted, but that didn't do it justice, so I deleted it and reposted a better one :D This is the onion that took me an entire semester in jewelry class to make. it's made out of everything from sheet metal, wire, tubing, and even cast pieces. the metals I used include copper, bronze, nickel, and steel. It stands close to 12" tall and the wire base it's on makes it all springy when touched :) I used different patinas to make it green, brown and black

^.^ thanks! this is one of my first major patina jobs that haven't been worn off (since it's fine art and doesn't get worn)... speaking of patina, I want to learn a bunch of recipes some time, I know there's books out there, but it's possible to do all sorts of odd colours if you have the right stuff... reds, blues, greens... and those aren't mild colours to
