When displaying a sculpture outdoors it is advisable to secure it. Depending on the surface there are different options available.
A tent peg can be used over the feet to secure into grass, do not peg through pond liner but place stones or a brick onto the feet.
Use small hook nails to secure onto wooden decking or fencing, use a masonry drill and screw for patio slabs or concrete.
All our sculptures are created from reclaimed metal (mild steel and galvanised) and often will already have a rustic patination that adds character to the product. However, we dip the sculpture in clear gloss lacquer to give it a protective coating. To help maintain this finish you can periodically re-coat with gloss exterior varnish or lacquer.
Following these basic tips will allow you to enjoy the sculptures for many years.
