While I am doing some extensions on the house and working with Porfix building blocks, I have decided I will make me a Kimura style rock tower for some junipers to have some fun along the hard work.
2 weeks ago I glued 4 of them together with frost resistant flexible building block glue and yesterday I took out my new makita gear and got to it.
Afte I finished, I painted it all over with deep penetration liquid to prepare it to be coated in more flexible frost resistant (cement like) glue.
Now I have to figure out which paints to use for it to look more realistic than my previous effort.
Junipers are waiting in the garden and that will be the most fun part to style them and wire into positions on the rock tower.
I will try and look up some suitable pot for it and if I won´t find anything, I will try to make a concrete slab for it.
Before the works begun
It went through like if I was sawing the butter - but pretty soon all of the sharp points on the blade were gone - for this process I totally destroyed 2 blades
After the rough silhouette was done
and after carving

Cheers lads. It is howerver not my idea, I saw it on Marc Noelander´s profile on facebook, that he does it from these bricks. And I love it - very easy to work with, it holds the screws for wiring the trees very well, details can be carved better than on styrofoam I would guess..now I have to find the right way to do the finish - so I will experiment with different paints in coming days.
