After hunting and dragging half of South County’s driftwood back to my patio, I am getting to the fun part. Painting the driftwood to bring my creations to life.
My son decided he wanted to make a giant catapult. He’s painting it red.
Here’s another little detail. I used a bottle cap and gun shell casing I found on the beach.
I plan on heading back to the beach to find a few more pieces of driftwood. Now that I’ve started this project, I know what I need. I’m looking for some head shaped pieces of driftwood and stumps if I can find any. I hate to say I’m disappointed we didn’t have any hurricanes this autumn, but there’s slim pickings on the beach!
My dining room is beginning to look like a wooden zoo. What on earth will I do with all of these sculptures when I’m finished?
