Since I had the four columns ready I needed a base. A lion, a little souvenir from the famous Patio de los leones of Alhambra, which I bought in Granada, gave me the idea to make the following:
Patio del león
First, I glued the lion on a MDF board. Then I covered the board with masonry putty and strewed sand on it.
I left four corner areas uncovered with the above materials for the columns, which will not be glued in order to be easily removed, if needed on another scenery.
I painted the board with "flat earh" and highlighted it with "USA tan earth" and "dessert yellow". Then I attached the columns.
In the meanwhile, we had a BBQ day. The steaks were tremendous and delicious!
The paella had six kilos of rice and numerous shrimps, mussels, cuttlefish, shells, etc.
Finally, this is the original "Patio de los leones" of Alhambra in Granada.
That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!
