Decorative Sun Project

This is a decorative Sun made to hang on a door or wall. The center wood face is made from 0.5 inch Baltic Birch plywood and is 10 inches in diameter.

The center face part has several coats of white primer and the finish coat was several coats of Rust-Oleum bright copper.

The outer flame part is made from 0.050 inch white styrene plastic that has a faceted surface. This material was designed primarily for fluorescent light fixtures.

A flame pattern was created on cardboard and was traced onto a stack of four pieces of the styrene material that was then taped together and cut out at the same time. The flames were solvent welded together using Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK).

The outer flame part was also finished with several coats of Rust-Oleum metallic bright copper.
