A sea horse natrual

A sea horse natrual

Posted by Merc on 4/25/2008
 Nominated for Feature by WildRok Productions
This was made for my friends at Revin Evolution in Austin Texas. I used powders and frit for most of the piece and a stuff n puff for the sea horse. Its about 12 inches tall and features a mixed sandblasted finish that I flame polished in places to give it a more authentic look. Peace
