Sketch of wall sculpture
I am still planning on creating a metallic wall sculpture using aluminum cans as my primary source of material. I plan to build something similar to the sketch shown above. I estimate that I’ll need around 30 cans to complete the wall sculpture. I want my decoration to be a decent size on my wall so I am planning on making it 28″ x 21″. I have yet to find a material to use for the frame but I think that wood or metal (if I can find some) would work well.
Cut aluminum cans
I have begun collecting and cutting the aluminum cans into aluminum sheets. The aluminum sheets measure roughly 7″ x 3″. I may need to refine my cutting process or deburr the edges of the sheets because the edges are very sharp and jagged.
Epoxy on hand
In order to bond multiple aluminum sheets together and to the frame I will be using Gorilla epoxy. Gorilla epoxy is the only epoxy that I currently have on hand so I will need to be conservative in its use to make sure that I do not run out.
