Enjoy the creative process of Bronze sculptures. This is a journal of my personal experience making sculptures out of bronze. Many people are unfamilar with the process, it takes many steps and man hours to create such a piece. "Did you make that with your hands?!" Yes, that was a question I was asked. Growing up in an age of non-technology had its rewards, knowing how to use your hands.

29th of August brought much excitement, the beginning of the Patina process. Adding a mixture of different chemicals creates the tint on the medal. It' applied with a brush in a "Dibby Dab" technique which my oil painter instructor would not approve. The reason; the artist holds a torch in one hand applying heat to the medal. The other hand is applying the chemicals, within seconds the tint shows up along with the marks of the brush. One wants the tint to appear like airbrush or whatever technique they choose. With a smooth surface, I chose blended appearance.
