Hello Costas,

Im looking forward to the discussions in this Forum, cause the display of a figure is a great love of my own.

So, lets go forward and let us learn from each other.

The best wishes,

yes I am always looking for ideas
Actually I am looking for one for the Maori I have just done - needs to have the same look as Lord of the rings (as same type of scrub as the movie - both had same denseness and of couse both from Phils home planet of New Zealand) -want him amongst the thick bracken and flax plants and trees to give him the look that he has just spotted 'the enemy' for the rest of the column.

Mornin..all,..
This could turn out to be a real interesting wee thread, when I get the chance to do ground work these days its enjoyed as much as sculpting,.. as I have stated other times it can become an art form and stand alone in its self,.. I call it a setting and the plinth the picture frame and the whole piece a presentation..
