Uk Exclusive Bronze Sculpture – Master Toad

This unique and special Frogman Bronze Sculpture is only available in the UK with an incredibly small edition size of just 80, Master Toad is expected to sell out very quickly. Master Toad has been hand crafted using two very different special patina processes.

The foiling effect on the back and the legs of the sculpture is created using many individual small squares of metal foiling which are carefully applied to every sculpture by hand and then a solution is used to create the colour over the foiled surface.

The beautiful plain silver patina on the belly of the sculpture, however is created by spraying with silver whilst the sculpture is hot, then polishing off and repeating this process until the beautiful rich deep silver patina is revealed. The frog is hot all the time that this is being done and this process may have to be carried out up to six times to achieve the required depth of silver.
