Agate Toad


Recommended Posts

Hey Dante:

 

Good to see you here again!

 

Really nice toad, I love the way you got all the bumps. The pattern of the agate looks good for the skin, and I like the fire agates for the eyes. I'm especially impressed with the way that you were able to do the undercutting between his body and legs, so easy to do in wood, so difficut to do in stone.

 

Great work as always!

Hi Dante,

 

Amazing work....especially the texture of the skin.....thank's for sharing and also thank's for making me discover the kentucky agate, I didn't know at all about it.

hi christopher, this piece took over 7 mounths of work you know,on and off but yes the textures huuuuuufffffffffffff , It came to e point that I feel never ending jajajaja but I like the final result , the problem was not carved the texture, but to polish the texture ,that was the real challenge
