many of you already know about my candle holders that i finished last week. for those of you in the dark about this, here they are! they are on my website as well as on etsy. i'm really happy with them as this time i went a little further in the design and refinement process, meaning i used the grinder and got the top layer of rust off of some(see below). the two below with the rr screws sticking through them also have a rust converter painted onto them (thanks for telling me about this nellie!) i still prefer the rusty look for the majority of my work...the patina and subtle nuances aren't something i can replicate...even if i could why would i when its already there? however, i'm getting it that some people might prefer a 'cleaner' look and feel. all of my rusty pieces are cleaned on the bottom anyways, but the rust converter will cease further rusting, say if you live in a super humid area and leave them outdoors. and i will admit, it does lend a more elegant look to the candle holders. i have one more set not listed here on etsy as well. go check them out!
