Sadolin colours bring unique sculptures to life

Sadolin colours bring unique sculptures to life

An artistic element is being added to Sadolin’s superior woodcare credentials with the creation of intricate designs carved by a family-run chainsaw sculpting company.

The West Sussex-based Woodland Centre Ltd gives wind-blown tree trunks and branches a new lease of life with the creative flair of founder and chief ‘imaginator’ Anne Watson and her son-in-law, chainsaw sculpting expert, Dave Lucas.

Anne is a self-taught woodcare artist and says Sadolin was a natural choice given their trust in the product. Having built and decorated their own ‘black and white’ Tudor-style house, where the business is now based, in West Hoathly, West Sussex, they knew Sadolin was both durable and reliable.

Anne said "There are many reasons why I chose Sadolin, but not least because of its excellent colour range, its durability and very good ultra-violet and weather protection. From an artistic perspective too, it’s easy to mix up colours and obtain a wide range of one-off shades".

Next to receive the Woodland Centre’s colour treatment are a series of fairy tree houses which will be adorned in pastel Sadolin colours for The Forestry Commission, while a 9ft high tree trunk, is waiting in the wings for Dave’s and Anne’s imaginations to visualise its new artistic lease of life.
