Oversized Crayfish Kicks My Butt

The Riverboat Marina Restaurant had a 6′ crawdad sculpture out front that really needed some TLC.  Someone broke a limb off and stood on his tail and broke that too.  He was also dingy and dirty.  He was looking pretty sad so I offered to fix it.

The fiberglass surgery went well and all of the limbs are now firmly on with an all over shellac of resin.  Nobody told me how painful four hours of spray painting with three cans of paint would be…

He is now as bright orange as a cooked crayfish should be.

I had my picture taken with him when he was back in place and a line immediately formed of restaurant patrons eager to do the same.  He’s already a celebrity.  I’m so proud.
