Mugo pine #3

First inage as of July 2011
Second image as of June 2012 after repositioning
then new pot design
all old needles were plucked and the crown was edited slightly.

Now the tree is possibly ready for Noelanders Trophy. We'll see.

Hallo Walter
Hast Du die Schale nachträglich aufgehübscht ?

Walter,
Is this one of the pots that you applied a custom finish to or painted? I can't remember the previous post, but I believe you mentioned working on the glaze or finish of certain pots in your collection. If you don't mind, can you reveal the basic process you used to achieve these results? I really enjoy the finish on this particular pot.

Thanks,
Brian

Brian, my grandfather was a portrait painter. I learned from him how to paint very good backgrounds for portraits about 60 years ago. I have now remembered and apply this technique to pots. It works and I am happy with it. We will see how hardy the paint really is. It is supposed to last for very long outside.
