this is my newest piece. It is made entirely of BE Powders using open face casting and modified Freeze & Fuse techniques.

I love it! Great job on casting and F&F. You nailed the colors too. What method did you use to get the twig?

Thanks, Vernon. The twig is also a modified F&F technique. As for the colors, I've been working on aspen leaves for a few months so I have those pretty well dialed in. The tough part is to get the colors realistic, but still different enough to provide a balanced composition. In real life the rocks, decaying leaves and branches all tend to meld together.

That is what I meant about the colors. By November the fallen aspen leaves no longer look like gold coins. The real thrill is being in a grove right before they drop. Almost like they are giving off light from within. I hope to see more of your castings posted here.

This is just a beautiful piece. I am very impressed with all of the different textures that are so life-like. You have hit a home-run !

thank you, Leonard. My goal for current work is to balance the really thin components with thick/solid pieces, and I'm really happy with how this work out. It's quite a journey.
