It is difficult to believe that is and the majority of Tim’s sculptures are made of solid bronze.Tim begins the creative process by sketching out a clear vision of what form the sculpture will take, then goes onto weld a metal armature that gives the sculpture a skeleton and uses sculpting material over this. The sculpture is then made into a mould by painting a felxible silicon over the top, a wax model made from this. The wax model is then dipped into a liquid mixture to build a ceramic shell, following this the whole thing is burnout and dewaxed in a kiln. The molten bronze is poured in to the hollow shell, after being cooled the shell is removed to reveal the beautiful sculpure. The final stages really bring the piece of work to life, with the colour added as it is treated with chemicals and fired with a blowtorch to create a patina. These patinas are just one of the individual and unique reasons for Frogman’s fame. Finally the sculpture is finally buffed and waxed by hand.
