Sculpted tree trunk captures the essence of the host of golden daffodils which surround it at a private house in Staplefield, West Sussex.

Sadolin’s protective range of translucent and opaque coatings are bringing to life complex carvings of woodland creatures, dinosaurs, wildlife and stunning Beatrix Potter characters at Woodland Centre in West Sussex.

The intricate designs are carved by a family-run chainsaw sculpting company and the outdoor art is popular with The National Trust, Kew Gardens, The Forestry Commission and Local Authorities across the UK among the prestigious clients.

Dormouse bench sculpted in Lime and weighing about 1,300kg, based in parkland in Ashford, Kent.

Anne Watson from Woodland Centre: “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”.

Sadolin Classic Wood Protection

Anne chose Sadolin Classic for its outstanding protective qualities as well as its comprehensive palette of 13 standard colours and more than 40 tinted shades, making it among the most popular ranges within the Sadolin brand.

This absorbs deep into the timber to provide exceptional protection against the weather.

As well as its unusual use on chainsaw sculptures, this product is particularly effective on large areas of timber such as cladding, fascias, decking and rough sawn timber.

It is also ideal as a base stain on new joinery when overcoated with Sadolin Extra.
