Koi Pond [Commission] by SmallCreationsByMel Koi Pond [Commission] by SmallCreationsByMel
Here was another Koi Pond I made for a customer. She really liked it =]

Customer Feedback:

This is so beautiful and detailed! It was packaged securely to be sure it didn't get damaged in transit. The care and effort in making this and sending it really shows. :)

You might have talked about this already, but it seems like there is water in the pond, and I was wondering how you managed that? Is it actual water, or a liquid-substitute (perhaps a gel?), or is it clay? I've seen the effect in several other of your works, and I'm rather curious.

I experimented with the resin and it hardened nicely but there are a few tiny bubbles that show. It's not completely clear like yours is. What can I do to make sure there are no bubbles?

:iconsmallcreationsbymel:
SmallCreationsByMel Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
Don't mix the resin too hard or fast because that would put air bubbles into the resin. Be gentle when mixing. Also, pour the resin into your piece gently too, like don't pour it from too high up =]. Hope this helps you!

If I use the clear glue to glue down the "sand" and pebbles around it do you think thatd be okay?
Reply
:iconsmallcreationsbymel:
SmallCreationsByMel Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
yup. as long as you use the resin AFTER the glue has dried entirely, it will be fine =]. If you put the resin in BEFORE the glue is all dry, the resin will become foggy.

What if i use the clear glue for the "water" Instead of the resin? Would the sand still stay in place?
Reply
:iconsmallcreationsbymel:
SmallCreationsByMel Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012
Yeah it will but you might have to do it in layers cause the glue will take longer to dry if it's thick. and do not mix the glue when putting it in cause it bubbles very easily

what is the water made of and how did you get it that way?
Reply
:iconsmallcreationsbymel:
SmallCreationsByMel Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012
It's resin. It comes out as a liquid, but when it dries, it becomes hard. It comes in two bottles, one is the resin and the other is a hardener. You can find it in craft stores. I believe mine was epoxy resin
