Very nice work and layout. What is the backing piece? 

The simple element of the division at the bottom of the backing really adds depth and defines the water. Well done. 

Are the heads  solid? That would get pretty heavy. If you don't mind my asking how are they attached to the copper body?

The head is just hammered out sheet metal and welded to the body. The backing piece is nice stone that was left over from the building. The ducks are life sized. I've been thinking about making a life sized eagle but that'd be a lot of work and I'd want to have a buyer lined up.

Wow. Outstanding. I have looked thousands of Ducks in the eye - I raised them for a time - three thousand at a time, from day-old to fully fledged. Your creatures exude the spirit of the Duck, and evoke some fine memories for me. Splendid.

If you save enough soy sauce packets, you can use it as quenchant.

That is stunning work.  Thanks for sharing.  

Oh, how did you get the patina?  Did you roll water right off the back end of them?

I read all replies so as to not be repetitive, and I've settled on the term EXQUISITE. I greatly appreciate the simplicity and the attention to detail. Kudos!
