12,352 multi-colored staples on a 25″ x 40″ painted board.
My fourth mosaic was yet another in my Star Wars series and another iteration image of the iconic Darth Vader character, called simply, Darth. I am constantly searching for new colored staples to expand my palette and I buy several thousand at one time. By the time I began work on Darth, I amassed a large collection. It was great to be able to use so many cool colors such as cyan, light blue and violet on Vader’s mask, especially on the helmet at the top of the piece.
