FAQs - Some common questions answered.

Do you accept commissions? 

Absolutely yes, Darren will be happy to discuss your commission request and if accepted, will work closely with you to ensure that you get exactly what you are expecting from your order.  

Are they for inside or outside? 

Designed for outdoors and equally happy as indoor, decorative pieces 

Where should I place my D’Sculpted garden art? 

As an insect refuge, ideally, in a sheltered spot (rain shadow) and south or south-east facing. If designed for solitary bees it needs to be approximately 1 – 1.5 metres above the surrounding ground. If placed directly on the ground, insects will use it. Of course, you may decide to keep your sculpture indoors as a decorative item

What metal is used? 

Mild Steel and Marine Grade Stainless Steel 

How long will they last outside? 

Mild steel sculptures are spray lacquered with 2 layers of 2K clear coat, once fully cured this provides a highly durable finish, designed to cope with all weathers. The finish is not ever lasting, and you should expect to see signs of weathering, when this occurs will be influenced by the local conditions within which the sculpture is placed so cannot be predicted or guaranteed. Rest assured that as your sculpture develops a natural patina, the structural integrity will not be affected. 

If you live in close proximity to the coas,t it is recommended that you consider a piece made from marine grade stainless steel.

Will I need to refill a D’Sculpted sculpture? 

Most of the fillings are very woody so will last and last but yes you should check your fillings every year and use anything natural to plug gaps that may occur. 

What can I use to refill my sculpture? 

These are filings I commonly use: Pine cones, Bamboo, Teasel, Moss, Lichen, dried weed stems 

Why arent’ there any insects in my D’Sculpted sculpture? 

Generally, insects like to stay hidden so you should not see them, but rest assured they are there
