Pounded Copper Christmas Present

One of the latest poundings...
Tony's Christmas Present...

Wiro..the Electric Boy in a 3 3/8" square piece of scrap copper...

It's a work in progress...as I don't know enough about working with metal to be able to take this further...
at least not yet.
I'm figuring it out as I go...
I'm taking Wayne Farra's soldering (riveting) class in February, which will definately help with a lot of these other things I've been pounding on.
I want to know about patinas, so I ordered the book Japanese Patinas, by Eitoku Sugimori.
I found it in the Ganoksin archives.
This next year I'm making the studio friendlier to this whole process.

It's too much fun to be fighting with the awkward nature of how it is now.
