Henson Pig Trail 2017 Gloucester blog 05

Henson Pig Trail 2017 Gloucester blog 05

All of the painted artwork has now been finished and the next step, as the picture show was to give each pig a coat of varnish. The varnish helps to bring all the colours and painted elements together. 
The pictures show the pigs prior to wrapping and dispatch to Gloucester, in west England. Here they will be placed in to a trail in the City called 'Old Spots Sculpture Trail, and is based on an old Spots pig named Henson. The trail runs from June to August 2017 after which the pigs are auctioned off for charitable causes. Further information can be found here.
