This is a collection of my “Cactus Series”. It is designed on Vetric Aspire 8 software and cut with a Laguna CNC. The finished “Medite” outdoor substrate is coated (i.e. brushed, spray or sponge) with a product that has “actual” metal on /in the finish. I then “patina” should I want a certain look. Outdoor life 10-15 years; just UV re-coat with a protective finish each year. The photo’s are coated with “CopperB” , red Patina and Poly. The Sun- Brass; Poly.

Very nice, I like them!

A propos “desert” and “catus”. I live in Germany and like the rich an green vegetation very much. But I like cactus-plants too. Now I only have 4 or 5, but years ago I collected them and had up to 300 plants. Some of them where very beautiful, others hat many or big flowers.

Very well done!

I have always liked a “western/desert/prairie” scene.

Thank you- If I develop this “cactus” theme further- then I’ll make some green.

Looks great, I’m vacationing in Arizona right now and love desert everything, usually come down once a year. These would look great in my families back yard, might have to make some up and bring them down with me next year. Nice work!
