My friend has been studying sculpture and wanted to make a bust of his father as a gift to give to his mother.
This one is the first model and it was made out of plaster or some kind of sculpture material.
He had the final bust bronzed as his gift to his mother. But, this one he asked me to paint with metallic bonze paint and paint a light patina on it.
If you have a small bust or something that you wish was bronze, just paint it with these metallic paints. Any paint store will have them.
I think my friend did a great job on this bust and I bet his mother was very happy!!
