Extreme example of the inherent strength of epoxy coated, foam core construction!
Do not do this stunt without assuming All your own risks and liabilities!
..Reccomend using your own structural engineer's certification for any kind of extreme usage.
The realistic tinting of epoxy construction of this frog should allow for a most durable finish against abuse.
I plan to do a little touch up painting.
Will put clear coatings on top of final finish that will smooth out some texture and gloss the eyes..
The entire bottom is covered in 9/16" CDX plywood including the toes; beveled [generally 45 degrees] inward and overlapped with the epoxy resin.
To mount to a base, screw up through lily pad base into outside edges as needed around the entire frog's base.
Use extra long screws near outer edge where best bond of resin is overlapping the bevel.
Also recommend shims generously placed where ever needed to avoid unnecessary stress when screwing to base level.
The photos named with "coated" are painted entirely of colored epoxy resin!
These colors may take on a slight amber tint if exposed directly to sunlight over time yet are extremely durable!
Square is 24 inches Long, sign is at 15 inch mark. A Five Foot Frog!
