Bronze Allure Left Side by Galindorf Bronze Allure Left Side by Galindorf
Mixed Media sculpture, 15"

Primarily Papier maché, polymer clay for the eyes, teeth, lure & spots.

Private commission for a gentleman who was an admirer of my "Copper Fish" sculpture. He asked for something more akin to a Viperfish and, using this as inspiration, created this fangly fish! His eyes, lure, and side-spots all glow in the dark for a super spooky effect. The bronze look is a very carefully applied faux finish.

I assure you I am completely and totally aware that this is a real type of fish that exists in our oceans. I was trying to be funny. I'm terribly sorry; I'll be careful not to make that mistake again.

Awww! What a precious baby. :heart:

Did you use a spray-on copper patina finish, or was it another technique? :)

:icongalindorf:
Galindorf Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi Julie! It's actually a faux finish paint job using brush-on acrylic paints (the bronze is a metallic paint). It came out fairly convincing!

:iconjuliekrizan:
JulieKrizan Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, okay, my experience with faux-patina is this, and it was a massive pain to work with. Did you find the acrylic paint easy to work with in this context? :)
Reply
:icongalindorf:
Galindorf Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The acrylic paint is as easy as... paint! The big difference here is that the patina on the Rust Oleum is super tough, indoor-outdoor, and probably uses real metal. Like, you have a bronze-powder infused paint and then apply a chemical that "quick-oxidizes" it. So, the patina is real, albeit really -thin.- The finish I did would not stand up to rough handling and certainly not work outdoors. If you're just doing small things that will be under a protective finish or display only, paint works just fine!

I love how blue is applied even though bronze - as a copper alloy - goes green with oxidation. I've done something similar with the bronzing technique, but oh yours beats mine out of the water by a lot! This sculpture is truly amazing.
