tzonoqua Posted March 16, 2010 Share Posted March 16, 2010 Getting some work prepared for a woodland sculpture exhibition. The wood will be full of bluebelles at that time, and you all might know how I love my flowers- I've been inspired by the little snowdrops peeping their heads out of the snow, we've had a particularly harsh winter up here so everything else seems to be late. Anyway, this is the first one, its about 1m tall, I plan to do maybe about 7 of them, plus some other stuff I haven't even thought of yet Now I can't decide how to finish them. Obviously they will all dwell outside so thinking maybe painting- but what colour- not sure if I went for the realistic green leaves and white flowers, sometimes i am not a fan of painted steel as it can look a bit cartoony. I love the look of steel itself but I've had limited success with clearcoating for work outside, and i also like a rusted finish, but as these will be for sale, customers don't necessarily like rust.. suppose I'd love if anyone had any suggestions. Perhaps I'll have to do some trials with paint etc. I am tempted to get them galv'd but I'd rather avoid the journey to the galv plant, although I do like the look of etched galv...and would be worth it for the longevity of finish... oh, what to do!! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
