Work-in-progress

I am turning a Japanese Maple tree into a sculpture, spraying it with Chinese Red oil paint, with lacquer to follow.  The piece will be mounted on a metal bracket attached to the wall.  The roots will be left unpainted and dipped in thinned out lacquer.  While painting, the tree hangs from the roots to allow me easily to turn it while I spray the color.  These photos show the tree after three coats of primer, and then two successive coats of color.  I anticipate several more coats will be needed to reach full color.

    The branches are so delicate and lovely. The paint really brings out this feature. It’s going to look great on your wall! Very nice.
