3D challenge

This is my 3D challenge I wanted to make from felt a vessel that looked as though it had been dug up as if it was grave goods old and rusty, I was inspired by Lynda`s work at Purple Missus. the fabric was 2 layers of man made felt embellished together with seams and rivets also embellished
onto the surface.But why oh why does some felt melt and not others, this one I had to hack chunks off with a wood burning tool which I also used to burn on a Celtic motif,before first painting it dark grey and the for the rust Quinacridone gold, it looks much bluer in the photos

I also felted this piece to go my sketchbook journal the colours had to be the opposites as I did not have any dark knobbly bits of wool

Wow!! How convincing is this? When I first opened up your blog I thought ' halo! what's Pippa doing with a Rusty old bucket?'. It's worked brilliantly, I especially like the rivets and the join, great stuff!!!
