I recently recasted “Forced Entry” which gave me the opportunity to redo the color and make it stand out even more. The photo is showing the first coat of all the whole coloring process or correctly known as “patina.” It is very similar to a primer, but it called “liver” which is similar to a sulfur. Once it has contact with the bronze it turns the bronze black. It was fun going down memory lane and remembering where I was back then and where I am today as a sculptor.
Details shape all of use. In my art, not one stitch is left out. This makes your monument, your sculpture, your legacy different from the rest. -Austin Weishel
Every time I set up my boots I think about the first time I stepped into a fire house when I was young in Chicago.
With the fresh smell of a past structure fire to that family type atmosphere that surrounds every firefighter, it’s one of those things that never gets old… and the rush is what we all live for…
Clay shapes me as much as I shape it. One of the greatest beauties of my sculptures is emotion. As I feel sad, happy, angry or excited, it will be shaped into the clay and then captured forever into Bronze. -Austin Weishel
