We are turning the brand new entrance building at Lagos Zoo into a giant animal crate. With friendly turtles making good company I have hand painted each and every giant plank of pine with painstaking detail using a ‘faux’ wood or (as I like to call it….) real eco-wood finish. This huge project took almost 6 weeks, but is an absolute joy to behold at the finish. I also used a specialized trompe l’oeil technique of shading, to create the 3d effect.
