Very interesting use of a scrub pad; but the result looks great.

Thanks for all the comments, folks. I agree that it will be interesting to experiment with the color of the resin (I think a metallic green might look good) and the density of the copper.

This was certainly not an original idea, but I had fun with it (Warning: the copper shards that come off while turning can be sharp).
