Here is Raphael in all his colourful glory. I used acrylic paints to create the effects and had fun in the process. A final coat of PVA to give him a sheen all over, rather than just on the metallic paint areas. I love him. The idea was patinated Bronze and I was delighted to discover the many colours available on real bronzes. If you google it, there are foundries that provide colour-charts for patinations available if ever you want to commission a bronze sculpture. I think I will stick to paper clay!
