Sculpture and Faux Finishes 1

"Eventually all landscape painters become religious."
That sounds noble.  I'm worried that "Eventually all sculptors become set decorators."

Not that that is a bad thing.... 

I made these panels for the Far West Show. They were colored to match a sandstone sculpture.
Very peachy-beige-y. They worked for the space, but have been in the shed ever since.

 Time for a new look for them.
The original design is a bronze Japanese flame pattern from the 7th Century. Let's make them bronze.
 Start with a dark background. Then a shockingly bright mix of Pthalo green and white paint.
What comes next isn't pretty........
