Memorial animal planter of a pet that has passed.

Our 18.5 yr old cat passed. So, the first iteration of a memorial planter. Thinking orange pansies for the planter. Summer flower can be English marigolds.

When taking the wooden friends to the parks, remember to pick up after them.

For the fine lines, a syringe for cleaning out gaps left after wisdom teeth have been removed was used. Spray paints with a stencil made of paper is handy for soft edges. I have a comb over so the staff at the self serve checkout give the ok to me purchasing the spray paints.

 Here, used a line marker spray can, question, how to clear the tube/nozzle of the spray can? Normally hold it upside down and press until clear gas comes put.

 An elephant just after painting, used a brush for this one. The helper was on hand to exterminate any bugs landing on the fresh paint.

Hello @Jamespeter100

 

Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful memorial for your cat. It's always handy to have the helper around. Have you ever built one that was so big you had to have two people to move it? 

 

Again, thank you for sharing and we look forward to seeing your next creation.

Re: Memorial animal planter of a pet that has passed.

@Jamespeter100,

 

So sorry for your loss. Our pets become such beloved members of our families that it can be heartbreaking when we lose them. We also have a little memorial for our family dog Humphrey in our garden - just a simple stone feature where his ashes were buried. I like to give the stone a pat when I walk by. 

 

Thanks for sharing your wonderful planter with us. The Workshop community loves your creativity.
