The framework for the body was constructed using marine quality stainless steel and galvanised chicken mesh, then built up with car body filler, professionally spray painted using 6 layers of paint and finally coated with 4 coats of clear laquer. These particular materials were used as the cormorant is sited on a balcony overlooking the sea and is open to all elements.
