There’s still quite a bit of work left to do on this piece, but most of the cosmetic things have recently been completed, so it’s really starting to look like something. The paper on the number pieces, fanning out from the center, were re-done quite a few times before I arrived at the right color, and finish. What finally worked was kitikata rice paper, and a subtle oil treatment. That yielded a nice warm color, a tattered surface, and enough contrast to pop the dark colored metal.
