I finally lugged this guy back to Massachusetts, and when the weather wasn't raining, I started spraying the pewter pot with the silver paint my brother bought me. It took several coats, but also after doing the wire wrapping, I still had to touch-up the paint again, and THEN shellac it, to seal it on.
How many coats did I use?
I honestly don't even remember...
Durring the last few days I visited my father in PA, they had the AC o full blast, so I got a sinusitis. I still worked on this while I as sick, plus I also got into some heavy research stuff at the same time, and sat through many videos, calls, and lectures. I did try to video document this process on video, but once I got very sick, I lost a lot of energy, and didn't document it entirely.
