Greek Pitcher # 154

Piece #154 – Poplar & Copper Leaf Patina – 5″ diam by 9″ tall – SOLD

This Greek pitcher is made from poplar. It was turned on my lathe then hand carved using my portable dremel and hand chisels. It is nine inches tall and five inches in diameter. This poplar pitcher was first finished with sanding sealer. After a light sanding I applied three coats of black acrylic gloss spray paint sanding lightly with 220 paper between coats. After about five days I applied copper leaf on about 95% of the piece. The next day I sponged on a Sodium Sulfide and water solution using tissue paper and a cut sponge. I let it react for about three minutes and then dabbed dry the pitcher with paper towels.
