Copper Bear

I’ve just started working with metal and I love it!

My copper bear...

My copper bear…

I found a picture of a bear that we took at our cabin a few years ago. He looks like he is posing just for me! I made a template from the picture and cut it out of copper.

After hammering and patina-ing him, I sanded a bit off so his nose would be lighter, just like a real black bear.
