This Playground Pals Dolphin, stingray, turtle and fishes and sea life shows of its beautiful oceanic wildlife and fine details all around. This piece is made from brass to help please anyone's eye. Our artists heat the brass surface with blow torches and apply secret formulations of chemicals that react to the metal using various techniques, one layer at a time. Several coats of hand waxing result in a vibrant, deep, layered finish with complex subtleties that no other finishing method can achieve. Due to this hand crafted process each piece is unique with its own colors. Our Gallery’s hot patina finish is beautiful to behold and is much sought after. Mounted to a museum marble base.
