I spent quite a bit of time with the carved lips and the arms in relief on this guy. He was handpainted with base coats of white, yellow and orange, accented with a gold and blue rub. I used green, red, gold and blue to give it an older finish, not really distressed, but aged. Your eyes are drawn to the eyes of the frog because of their big blue size. These are antique german teddy bear eyes that I acquired in mass quantities several years ago. They are becoming somewhat of a trademark on some of my large decoys. They really add personality and make the decoy unique, that is for sure.
PRICE ON THIS FISH DECOY IS $125.00 PLUS $5 FOR SHIPPING. Contact me through the link to my website in the right column. Posting email addresses and links on blogs don't play well with the robot spam thingy hack jobs that search the web trying to make life interesting for all of us. I will accept paypal, just let me know and I'll send you an invoice. Otherwise money order, personal check are fine.
This is a one of a kind creation. Handcarved with a knife. Handpainted with care.
Thanks for lOOking! Tim
