Winged Spiral 1 in progressAugust 30, 2018
Working on Winged Spiral #1.
I took a different approach to creating the wing after using hardware cloth (heavy screening) to create the basic shape and wiring it to the steel rod spiral, in the interest of keeping the wing thin but structurally sound.
In moving I came across a few rolls of bandaging wrap that sticks to itself. (see - it pays to go through your stuff) It occurred to me that I could wrap the screen and give the Apoxie Paste a substrate to stick to without dripping through the screen (most desirable!). I spread the first layer last night as a test, this morning it’s exactly as I expected (yay!) - thin, smooth & hard. More layers to come, then metal coating with patina…thinking bronze….
