Rusty metal mermaid stakes, salmon, and garden heron stakes amongst other things in the last two weeks. Another trip to Brentwood Bay scrap yard too. A driveway of metal here at the studio out there in the rain with vinegar and salt added to hurry up the process, just love things that can be mechanically sped up with impatience, and a little science thrown in.
