I like your frog and that he is in the 'cameo'.
What kind of fiberglass do you use? Do you fire it on before the painting? at what temp?

Thank you ! I used fiberglass from auto supply store--the kind that is spiderwebby, not mesh. i used latex gloves while using it. I pull off the amounts I want then soak them in mix of white or Wlmer's glue which ah sbeen thinned a bit with water. ithen apply it to areas on piece where I want it to be. It was fired at o10 or 09. ( It can be fired at 06 but that gives a different texture that is VERY thin and webby.) I applied before painting. The log that the frog is sitting on has been "chipped off" which was done after the firing of fiberglass.
If you have any other questions you may email direct at lhpatton@nc.rr.com .
