Layed the work on a steel table outside to pour some acid on it so it will turn green in parts. Will let it lay for a week. Although I,ve been posting these photos for a week. All the work pictured so far was done over the course of two days. This weekend I,ll mostly be makeing the frame. Have not seen the piece since I layed it outside a week ago. So won,t know till in the morning how it came out.
