    Most of us wish we were half as talented. Outstanding work. Looks incredibly life like. I would love a DVD on something like that.

  19. They are hard coated with concrete with epoxy as the finish coat. I used over 400 gallons on that project. Concrete does not produce a realistic finish for wood because of it being so porous but you see it used alot none the less because its much cheaper.
