Summer by the seaside…. “SUMMERSIDE”
Ottawa River Driftwood, meticulously cleaned, lightly sanded, and clear-coated with water-base, gloss exterior urethane, to bring out the character of the driftwood.
Top arm was well munched by our National animal before it came into my possession.
Five 5 copper dragonflies, 2 bright, 3 with a brilliant and unusual patina, one I’ve not been able to recreate to date.
Semi-precious Blue Banded Agate and Raw Amazonite nugget “bob” keep SUMMERSIDE beached and not drifting out to sea.
Nearly white seashells, beach sand and crystal blue agate complete this beach-themed mobile.
Delicate tri-colour-patinated wings. Patina created from home recipe of my copper scraps, white vinegar, pink salt, and accidental iron contamination, along with a fair deal of patience. Automotive clear-coat applied to dried wings for stability of crystals formed during the evaporation process.
Videos of my mobiles can be seen on my Instagram feed as well as my Facebook Business Page. Unfortunately the bandwidth required to have quality videos on my website is limited. Working on that.
Not recommended for outdoor display. UV protecting automotive clear-coat has been applied to the patina wings to increase durability though rain showers may cause ‘melting’ of patina crystals.
Unpacking Instructions included.
43 cm (17 inches) diameter X 53 cm (21 inches) drop from top arm.
