|Stained, with copper|
Then I raised the details into the copper with a hammer and chasing tools.
|The coffee table is a great place for metal working|
To fasten the copper to the wood I made copper nails, by cutting lengths of copper wire and placing them into the vise.
Then gently hammering them down to form a flat head.
The last thing left was a display method, so I made a spear which could stand unsupported (screws to a flat tripod, hidden by sand), the tip has a rounded strip of steel that conforms to the chin of the mask. The mask is held in without fasteners, friction from the pinching strip holds it steady.
