Well done Dave!
I like the idea of black to fill the pores as is traditional.
I have three lions - a small pride.
I have to get back into it - lost the push for the last 5 years since moving.
I have been collecting material.

I never tried to cast an elephant, but I once tried to throw an anvil - missed my foot :>}
