Lily stands 8.5 feet tall. She comes in two pieces as she weighs about 70 pounds when she is all together. Since I am unable to carry 70 pounds, I made her in two pieces so I am able move her around by myself. When I finish painting her, I plan on putting a beautiful Giraffe Scarf around her neck, and you will never know she has a seam there. Anyway, she has several coats of cement on her, plus sealer, plus several coats of spray and brushed, exterior house paint. I will start her spots next, and then coat her with two more layers of clear sealer. She will live in my flower gardens in the summer, and our living room in the winter. Grin I am a bit nervous about painting her face….I am not a painter, nor do I draw. So I do not know how to mix colors or do shading with paints. Jonni, (or anyone) did you ever make a video of you painting your Giraffe’s face?????? If not, I guess I will wing it. Enjoy!
