I was recently in the Theatre unicorn zombie apocalypse and made this for my partner.  I was quite pleased with how it turned out.  But apparently I didn't take very good photos of the finished piece.  So I ended up lifting out some the photos from the unicorn zombie apocalypse chainswarm!  Thanks for taking such good pictures Randi!

Without further adieu:

Thanks for looking!

Looks ghoulish!  I eat the copper in there for texture.  Great work.

Thanks for the kind words jennieingram and Pinokeeo! 

I thought the copper wire was a fun and unique element to add to the piece. Added the definition the masks needed.

You know....I have to say...The more I see this piece....the more I miss it. 

I really think I'm going to have to make myself one. Or at least make one for our local community theatre...  Wink

Excellent! You did comedy & tragedy proud with this mosaic. The colors are great, and the copper wire is a good choice with the grays.  Smiley

Thanks, HSG! 

As soon as I saw the Theatre unicorn zombie apocalypse, I had a flash of inspiration of doing the masks in glass.  Not so easy for copper foil and solder....but mosaic? For certain!
