Custom Copper Hummingbird Sculpture

This lively, hummingbird sculpture is made with a thin sheet of copper, which is hand-shaped using metalwork tools. I used a combination of bright verdigris green and red-orange patinas to create the details of this piece. I also added gold paint to its wings for further accents. It is then coated with clear, acrylic coating to preserve its color. This sculpture measures 9 1/2'' by 8 1/2 "and is fastened with a green, floral wire for easy hanging.
