GGGgggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRRrrrrrrr im afraid its in the same private garden sorry.its finished now

17 Sep, 2008

 

I'm not asking for your secrets or anything..but you must use a light concrete mix or that tree limb will need shoring up! LOL. Brilliant! You do amazing stuff!

17 Sep, 2008

 

yes i can but i didnt in this case.the thing is it is actualy hollow and i use any old rubbish to fill them so user friendly to and friendly for the planet.i have know secrets about my sculpture.

this is the tree trunk

Wow doesn't seem to cover it thats brill, i'd love to see what the wildlife thinks to it so real.

How long did it take you if you don't mind me being nosey?

22 Sep, 2008

 

im nosey thanx anyway lol.glad you like it.believe it or not even being so bright its amazing how it dissaperes with a bit of dappled light and a few leaves.this was quite quick about 30-40 hours in bits i guess including research.spiders etc are living in and around the concrete elephant and this leopard.other wildlife doesnt smell or here anything so there not botherd.us week humans rely on our sight to much.im sure others use it for some thing.for instance a soldier i made at combat paintballs sight has puddles in the eyes of the skull at its feet.my dog drinks out of it so animals must.anyway i hope ive answerd your question bye for now.im nosey so i do mind lol www.noseypotter.com or look up noseypotter on utube

That is looking great, don't forget to show us the finshed Leopard. It's a wonder you have anymore room in your garden.

ow this isnt in my garden unfortunatly and i havnt got any more room.i am going to make a concrete fence in the future with a water feature running the full length and depth ending in a small pond built in the wall.the dogs can drink out of this.also im going to do a sculpture of an old man having a wee in it while keeping an eye out.ill keep you informed.i thaught i had a picture of the leopard finished on here
