I tried my hand at making those GROTS last fall that some of you have been talking about and I am finally getting around to showing them. I used some acrylic paints to bring out the shapes for the features. It was a real challenge to get that nose to stay put.

Very nice. Looks like fun, at least after you got the nose to stay put!

I think that is rather clever and the plants look very happy. Another idea would have been to mosaic the eyes and perhaps a big of wire frame to help the nose?
