This is my first clay to bronze, I worked with the local forge company. The cross is made out of Cypress with a dark charcoal stain. I destress the wood before staining, then using a dull lacquer with a extra flat sheen. The cross is 6’-0” tall x 3’-6” wide, Jesus is 38” tall. Thank you for looking!
