About

Wilybeasts!..... Born in the Black wood of Rannoch, a forest of twisted trees high in the mountains. Wilybeast roam about the forest looking for things to gobble up! Eventually they wander across the forests fields and mountains looking for other places to live... So the question is will one find a home in your garden?

Wilybeasts are a new style of ornament for your garden, inspired by childhood fantasy these mischievous looking monsters have been designed to give you enjoyment as you catch sight of their faces amongst the plants and flowers of your garden.

They are designed in our studio that is in the heart of the black wood of rannoch an ancient Caledonian forest, the very forest that helped inspire these creatures! 

The finished Wilybeasts you will receive as your reward can be made from a solid bonded slate finish or high quality concrete and will patinate with time to give an aged finish, you make your preference of medium when contacted at the end of the campaign, the bonded slate is recommended however as it is much more durable and gives more strength to the horns.

They are approximately 10 inches to the top of the head, but the horns make them taller. 

Please also note the actual statues will be supplied unpainted.

There are initially ten Wilybeasts in the range to choose from each with an individual character!

Each Wilybeast is hand made in the studio.

Wilybeasts picture book:

If you would like to find out more about the Wilybeasts then you can add to your pledge the Wilybeasts picture book, available in a traditional hard copy or Ebook format.

The book is twenty full colour pages of paintings with more information about the antics of these cute little monsters.

The paintings for the book will soon be completed, and will be professionally printed in paperback.

So expect updates as the campaign progresses....

Finally a work on why I'm kickstarting this project.

Bacically I need to purchase some equipment plus a new website and hire some printing services for the book, plus it cover some raw materials to manufacture the sculptures.

Risks and challenges

I have had experience with successfully delivering two Kickstarter campaigns.
I also have successfully run a company manufacturing high quality historical miniatures for 4 years, and have plenty of experience in this kind of business.
The Wilybeasts shown are plaster prototypes sculpted and cast by myself that give a very accurate reflection of what you will receive.

There are possible casting delays, however this is not too likely also funding goal has been given careful consideration and allowed contingency in case I cannot meet the orders myself for any reason. I have got prices from a very reputable UK based casting firm who will easily meet the orders rapidly. The book will be professionally printed too so you can be assured you will receive a quality product.
