Default Copper Cast

I tried my own variation of the copper scrubber cast in white PR



This one is assembled with a copper retro (although the colors don't show up well in the photo).

Thanks for your thoughts.

looks good Barry. Not sure if a little more copper would make it stand out more.

It's not bad. I'm no expert, although opinionated. I think less copper is what you need. Perhaps pull on the copper sponge, then you have less copper and more pens at the same time! I'd change the color too. Your craftsmanship of course is superb!

I've been watching too much COPS because the first thing I thought of was a crackhead.

Very neat ideal. That's the first one I have ever seen.
I have got to start casting.
