Another Painted Birdbath


I was given a copper lamp shade that I decided to use as a base for my concrete birdbath. I have been painting realistic looking leaves but wanted to match (I hope) the eventual verdigris patina of the copper base.What do you think?

      @Douglas Hunt Thanks Doug, can't wait till the base weathers. I may sand it a little to start it.
