There’s so much more to learn about this art form, and I am determined to explore as much of it as I can through the winter.  I’m sure I’ll be back in the garden come summer, but for now, staying indoors is not so bad.

Nail polish works great on metal, and now that there is no end to nail polish color, buying those small bottles is an inexpensive way to add to your color options.  The clear coat works well too.

However, the red in this piece is simply what happens when copper is heated to “glowing” and then immersed in water immediately.

About Patsye

I am an older woman and artist. I love to craft. I love to sew and knit and crochet and needlepoint. I love to paint and draw and make art with my hands. Being creative is what gets me up in the morning. Art is my tea, my fresh air, my good book, and my cats all rolled into one. I have much to share and hope you'll visit often.
