Little Duck Pond by DragonsAndBeasties Little Duck Pond by DragonsAndBeasties
So this was the result of my first experiment with resin to make water! I gave this to a very dear friend for Christmas. She just adores ducks and always watches out for the baby ducks in her complex every spring. She is the duck whisperer :XD:

I made a larger duck pond for my sister as well for Christmas, but I forgot to take pictures :(

Resin is a pain in the butt! It's toxic and messy and hard to keep lint out of while it hardens for a few days. You really can't beat it for beautiful water, but I will not be using it much if I can help it.

This pond is actually super little. It is just under 3 inches wide. That baby duck is less than half an inch tall! I'm really quite proud of this one :)

Made from Premo Sculpey

I know a really easy way to make pretty realistic water. You colour the bottom with a washable blue marker, then put some Elmers glue over it. I use that for dioramas and stuff, and I think it looks pretty good. The marker has to be washable though, otherwise the glue wont pick up the colour and it won't look right.

You should be proud, this is a true work of art!
Amazing job on this. 
I'd so be willing to buy one assuming you'd ever start selling any? :3

You may have heard of this, but an alternative to resin is liquid polymer! It dries clear and can be baked in the oven with the clay.

what a nice present! I also have a weakness for ducks. I fostered two baby ducks before. A mallard and a wood duck. I love there playful time in the water. I agree, Resin dows make amazing water. =)

This is beautifully detailed and the water is gorgeous. How did you get the resin that lovely blue color? I was under the impression resin was clear.

Thank you! It is clear. The bottom of the pond is blue. I think you can actually color resin, though I have no idea how that works =P

im wondering, did you make the pond (rocks and bottom water layer) filled it with resin, THEN placed the lilies/ducks before the resin cured?
or
was everything placed in there spot and after proceeded to putting in resin?

:icondragonsandbeasties:
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
I poured a thin layer, let it set a bit til it was just tacky,then poured another layer on that, put the ducks in so they sat on top of the first layer but sank into the second. That way they kinda look like they are floating more than sitting right on the bottom. The lily pads were put on when the top layer was tacky so they wouldn't sink, but stuck to the top.

The fumes from the resin are extremely toxic and the effects are cumulative. If you can smell it, you do not have proper ventilation. You need a forced air system with the intake between you and the resin. My mother learned this the hard way :(

I had the windows all open in the house because I have heard from so many people how toxic it is. It didn't smell at all really, so I assume the area was properly ventilated. The fact that it IS toxic is kind of a turn-off to using it at all though :(
