We recommend you varnish your metal and wooden animals twice a year in Spring and Autumn. We use ‘Ronseal outdoor gloss varnish.'
The varnish must be applied when the sculpture and brush are bone dry otherwise when the varnish dries it will be milky in colour.
In short no not totally. We use recycled metal as and where we can. There is a huge demand for all metals in Africa so we use a mixture of new sheet steel, oil drums and various car parts.
Yes, for our sculptures the vast majority of our wood is from sustainable Eucalyptus and Jacaranda plantations. These create an income for local farmers and have a very small effect on the local environment. We do have some hard wood sculptures with wood used from sustainable sourced hard wood trees.
