Animal sculptures will perfectly decorate your garden. To begin with, stock up on inventory - we will need: steel wire with a diameter of about 1 cm, a knitting wire (to fix the frame of the future beast), propylene or metal mesh. Do not forget to buy flower seeds (preferably low-growing varieties), grass for the lawn and what we will feed the plants. Soil and straw are also useful in making sculptures.
The embodiment of a garden figure in reality
Carefully draw the image of the future beast in the imagination - and then you can start creating the sculpture. Transfer the shape of the beast to the wire, bending it and fastening it with knitting wire. You can use welding to fix the frame, but it is easier to do this with ordinary wire. The bottom of the future sculpture must be wrapped with a net and pour there specially prepared soil. Preparing it is quite simple: you just need to add nutrients and straw there - that’s the frame, filled with earth, is ready.
Next, plant seeds of grass and flowers. Do not forget that you make an animal. It is necessary to highlight the eyes, nose and skin pigmentation. It is preferable to make the nose pink, the eyes should contrast with the color of the grass. Skin pigmentation is best done with variegated colors. Do not forget to water your creation! So that the soil is not washed out, it is necessary to water your beast carefully.
The first attempts may not be very successful, but you should not be upset. The creation of such sculptures will fascinate you, and over time everything will work out! The main thing - do not stop and improve in this matter! We are absolutely sure that after a while your garden will turn into a menagerie.
