Taking the hubcap for a new spin

This hubcap has been awaiting treatment for over a month. I was intrigued by its surface quality and thus, it was hard to part with that. By layering it with tissues some of the surface quality remained. Polymer medium hardened the surface and allowed some of the glow of the chrome to come through. I wanted to keep a metal quality. Oil paint has been added for additional color benefits and movement to keep the spin on. More can be read about this project at landfillart. org.
