"I have created sculptures and artworks my entire working career since 1976. In trying to discover best materials to hold super-fine details, suitable for outdoors, strong and long-lasting, I have developed proprietary Epoxy casting & coating systems. My Epoxy tinted clays are a cost-effective bronze substitute . It is non-toxic, rock-hard, very chemically resistant and long lasting. For these reasons epoxy compounds are widely used in zoos, museums, outdoors and repairs." CD
