Bronze birds.

A few photos from the studio of the birds as I clean them up. The hard work has been done for me- they have been cut and cleaned, so just a bit of filing, polishing and decide on the patina. To keep them bronze coloured and shiny involves a lot of polishing and a wax coat to seal them. They will always slowly darken over time but I quite like seeing things age.
