I made this a few weeks ago for la_colere, as part of a Halloween switch witch swap thingy.
Preparing the copper.
I gave a base of opaque ivory colour and abused it for an antiqued look. I painted the pumpkin with onglaze colours over it, this is the first layer, unfired and unfinished.
Fired, the paint cracked over the distressed enamel.
I hung swarovski crystals from it with silver wire, and added a ribbon in red and orange.
Packing with coppery organza in the papier mache box I painted with orange watercolour and copper acrylic inside.
Binding with satin ribbon.
