" A very original pumpkin mask neatly executed. The frilling on the ruff is a little ragged in places and there is some cracking in the paste; Take care to ensure paste comes right up to the board edge so not silver shows. Great imagination."

" Gosh this is scary! A bit of cracking on the coating paste could be avoided by gently rubbing with a piece of paste but a striking exhibit. Well done."

" Lovely Holly and Cymbidium. Neatly taped unites do try to hide the mechanics (Oasis). Design more suited for a side table than a table decorated for a dinner party. Good try."
Judges Forum : Dennie Rose
A delightful arrangement. Well executed and presented - the overall score could have been enhanced by covering the mechanics with damp leaves before assembly.
