Buddha painting (mixed media in progress)

Did this Buddha painting a few days ago. I used Bird grit for the texture and acrylic paint, its not quite finished yet I'm trying to get hold of some resin which i want to pore over the top to hopeful give it a glass like finish i'd like it to be about 1/2 in think, but we'll see i will probably muck about with it some more and it will end up completely different.

Another Paverpol Garden Statue Meet Steffen

Following the previous post on paverpol Here here's another figure i have made this time a boy called steffen. He's about 20" tall

I think he looks quite dashing standing in the lavender plant LOL again i painted him for a bronzed look .

Paverpol Garden statues meet Emmie

Last year i made some statues made with paverpol ( A textile hardener ) these can be put in the Garden as the paverpol makes them frost & weather proof.

You start by making a wire armature (I used Garden wire) cover that with tin foil to bulk it up then wrap masking or florist tape around it.Then you cut fabric in to strips (i used an old black cotton T-shirt) dip the strips in the paverpol and wrap the strips of cloth around the armature to make the body, then you basically drape and layer the material on top to make the clothes.

They look great amongst the plants in the garden

This is Emmie i went for a bronze look by adding bronze and gold paint to her
