    Congrats on the recognition and awards, 10! Glad to see your snail rider get the attention it deserves.
    It also sounds as if you and your friends have solved most of the world's problems for us, so I'll be eagerly awaiting the report of your findings on astrophysics, brixit (are we calling it the wrong thing when we Yanks say 'brexit'?), women, painting, painters, life, and sundry.

    Congrats on all the awards! It's a shame about the knight, I think that bust is a fantastic piece of work. Must have been a very high standard if it didn't place.

    Congrats on the awards buddy. And shame on you for talking about me to Andy, unless you were saying I was a bad painter but a passable sculptor...I'll take that

    Belated congrats, I can only imagine how tough the competition must have been, especially with only one golden crocs award

    Thanks all

    Last year I brought three of these off ebay for £8.00. (think I sent you one andy?) There called wooden pen blanks for carpentry. 30mm sq 100mm long.
    Anyway today spent a few hours, cut in half, half hour glass paper, varnish annnnnnnnd two plinths. I reckon a plinth like this would cost around £8 to £10 each
    so it cost me £2.66 each rod , cut in two makes £1.33 each and ive had fun making them. Could even spray black if not happy with the grain? Thoughts?

    Really good idea, 10, and the plinths look great. What kind of wood is it, if you know? I really like the grain- can't imagine you'd ever want to paint over it! For my own taste, I'd prefer the corners to be less rounded (which presumably would save you time on sanding?), but that's a matter of preference, I think.

    Montana Gold Gloss Varnish, it's a spray which dries with a nice gloss finish the more coats you put on it.
    Wood plinths like that deserve a good finish to show off how much they are appreciated.

    They look good and I might steal the idea, I suspect if you hadn't have told us, no one would guess they weren't bought that way

    Top marks sir! I have a bunch of blanks of various kinds from an exotic wood shop near me. It's way more cost effective to make your own and a lot of fun. ONLY one peril: The wife. I have had to finish entire tables now because of my plinth making skills. I suppose it's good because she knows i can handle any project on the honey do list, but it's bad because she knows i can handle anything on the honey do list - though, i constantly remind her it's BECAUSE OF MY HOBBY SKILLS

    10, what kind of woodworking ordinance did you require to create those plinths? Did you need any specialized saws or anything?

    Thanks for share Lee, I've had a look at these on eBay and the price is ridiculously cheap. Looks like I'm making my own plinths now

    Thanks both

    Inspired by Baileys black orc ive been messing with this bust, focusing on more skin texture with stippling and experimenting with different colours in the shadows and midtones.

    Love the colour on this so far. Nice and rich.

    Those greens are really hitting some depth, watching this one. I'm also intrigued how this will go with you working on textures, opposed to you usual exquisitely smooth glazing and blends.
