This project is going dreadfully slow ,due to a flaw in the prints and a few changes. I got my back access doors made, which just consist of two removable panels with camlocks to keep them closed. This is so the zoo keepers can maintain the live insects living within the log. Fiberglassing was done as well as sprayfoaming to further shape.<center>

Epoxy is added to the "dead end" of a root. I do most of the sculpting first with my hands, dragging and twisting in the wood grain. Small and large brushes add further textures. Lastly finished with knives and sculpting tools. I'll post some more soon enjoy!<center>

I'm not sure if you realize this Mike...........after having spoken to a number of members of this forum, it was unanimously decided that, with a little persistance and attention to detail........you just might have a future here lol. I can say for myself personally the stuff you do is amazing. I appreciate your taking the pains to explain. Im sure most others do as well. If you or other like minded and talented individuals ever decide to host a workshop let us know.
All the best to you and yours. Thanks again.
