Ponds In Progress


I decided to try to make miniature ponds to give to my Pay It Forward partners.

I've never used epoxy resin before. I'm finding that is a very SLOW process. Each pour has to dry before the next one can be added.

I found these little Koi fish on Ebay. I think they are so cute. The base will be made of floral foam sealed with Gesso, then painted.

I'm going to try a different technique to make the edges of the pond look like stones.

Hopefully, I will be able to post from home soon. Back to work now. Real work, that is!

Hope you have a nice day!

The Kois in the ponds are very beautiful. This is a pretty garden scene

Seguro que te quedaran preciosos.
El estanque lo haras cuando acabes con el proceso del agua no?
Yo siempre he hecho las fuentes y estanques y luego dentro he puesto el agua, es una buena idea la tuya, pero despues que haras....recortaras para meter en el estanque?
besitos ascension

Still not blogger at home. I'll try to keep doing quick posts from the office. After hours, of course....
