Finally finished the copper barn owl sculpture. Nearly every 'feather' was individually brazed in place. The difficulty with brazing is that continual heat is applied to melt the brazing rod, which often inadvertently melts the brazing that's already been fixed, meaning bits that have been fixed in place can drop off! It's often frustrating! Here are some more progress pictures and the finished sculpture.
I've been working on a barn owl sculpture. It's slow progress as I've been working around other projects. Each 'feather' has been individually brazed in place and it's slowly taking shape. Here are some photos of the work in progress from the sketch, skeletal frame to the fleshing out.
