Copper kettles

Here are some more details from the commission I'm currently working on.
Two copper kettles

I searched and searched for some junk that would give me the right shape for the kettles but I couldn't find anything so I decided to use Fimo/polymer clay.
This was the first time I'd used it for one of my miniatures but I don't know why I hadn't used it before because it worked so well.

The only copper coloured paint I had was spray paint but that worked out well as it gave a smooth, shiny finish.

The handles are wire with a little bit of masking tape wrapped around and painted.
I really like the way they turned out.
It's all coming together!
Not long before I can show you the final piece.
