One Buck Down

Big Projects, Beginning to End, Startle

This is part one of a two-part deer sculpture titled Startle.

The deer will both be finished with an iron oxide finish. I am planning to use a salt water solution rather than other chemical options to create this effect. I’ve heard it results in an warmer shade of rust.

I’ll be posting photos of the doe as soon as she’s camera ready.
