Alphabet - C is for Copper


Continuing on with my cut out letters I chose copper for my theme.  The letter "C" is covered with heat treated tyvek for texture and then coloured with copper, gold and metallic green acrylic paints.  The flower is made from a piece of an earring coloured copper with alcohol ink and a centre punched from copper paper and a brad in the middle to attach it to the "C".   A copper wire flower with it's stem curled around a pencil to form the thread to attach the tag to a present and copper wire wound round the whole letter (though you can't see it in the photo) finish the tag.

Thank you to everyone for their comments of encouragement last week and I look forward to browsing around this letter's contributions.
