Raising a Frog.

Used an castaway 18ga circuit board to raise a 3 inch tall frog. It was a charming little guy and I hope to make more deep relief frogs in the future. I only have a few photo's of the annealing process where you heat the copper to cherry red and fast quench it to soften the metal to prepare it for further shaping, but through out it's build I probably annealed it 20-30 times. And every time I needed to anneal I had to melt out the pitch again. This style of high relief with dramatic undercuts is becoming a fast favorite despite how laborious it is.
