Small Tortoise Planter

The small tortoise planter is slightly less than eight inches in length. These sculptures, upon which metal coatings have been applied, provide a high degree of water resistance. Metal coatings consist of finite metal particles suspended in an acrylic. Patina accents are achieved using a light green or Tiffany Green acid based patinas. The acid patinas react to the metal (bronze, brass or copper) particles within the coating while still wet. The patina effect is very subtle, yet provides an interesting iridescence when exposed to various light sources (sunlight, artificial, etc).
