The Toad Prince


A real prince or just another toad?
Patterned after a picture I saw of a prehistoric toad.......full body sculpt with wire armature, black onyx eyes with metallic hi-lights and oil pastels for his skin coloring. A crown finished to look like hammered brass with small fleur-de-lis finding.

I saw an artist's rendering of what they think is the oldest toad..I used some of the features and markings
I made a wire armature, covered it with some foil, then used super sculpey, painted with acrylics, pastel chalks and metallics
