No, they are delivered to us. Unfortunately, there is always one or more pieces in every delivery that I just have to have.
That picture of 'Drago' isn't the best, the sun made the colors look washed out. Am curently working on another dragon like him at the shop, will post pictures when it's done.
Meantime, this is 'Aslan', he lives on the opisite side of the front walk from 'Drago'.
My neighbor made this "window" for me. She found the window in the alley and painted it with some sort of special paint for glass. The large pieces of glass on the lower half were broken so she just saved the top part. I can't draw or paint freehand, but she did this w/o a pattern and did it in one afternoon.
Kids always notice this piece first.
This huge rabbit is in front of a house a few blocks from where I live.
They got it from a store that was going out of business. It's papier mache and it stops traffic when people drive by and see it. Very fun piece.
Any acrylic or latex paint will work as long as you use a clear coat made for concrete when the piece is painted. I use a couple of different kinds of sealants, but have only been able to find them by the gallon & a little expensive if you are only going to use it on a couple of pieces.
Check your local hardware stores for Behr or Quickcrete Clear Sealants, they may have it in smaller quantities. It comes in both Wet Look & Matt.
Boo: Great job, that is really pretty! I envy people with such talent! I wish I could paint like that, I have lots of that scalloped cement edging and it's so moldy and ugly looking, but alas I have no creative talent.
Oh, Dana, I'm so sorry. I see that I should have added the pic posts down here..I see that NOW, duh. I was posting pics of the metalwork towers that my husband made for me for Christmas and this is the Witch Tower
