Commission: Large Stone Pond by Bon-AppetEats Commission: Large Stone Pond by Bon-AppetEats

Commission for a large stone pond with 9 koi fish, one frog, two turtles, and water lilies.

Details:

  • The pond base was sculpted from polymer clay and is 6" at the widest part.
  • The koi fish, frog, turtles, water lilies, and lily pads were handmade with polymer clay.
  • The water is a clear resin.
  • The substrate is sand with real rocks and moss for underwater plants.
  • The rocks around the outside were placed individually by hand and glow in the dark (which I forgot to take a picture of :( ).
  • This piece took around 5 days to complete, plus a day of resin curing.
  • Commissions are closed until August. I am open to making more ponds like these when they reopen!

What clear resin do you use???? I've tried several types, but they never turn out even remotely as clean as yours. I follow the directions, but something doesn't seem right. Please help?

I like your use of moss and sand.  Is that a twig in there?  Or just more moss?  I think it really helps to add to the realistic look of it! Nice job!

Thank you! The bag of moss I had still had some twigs in it. I decided I'd throw a couple into the pond. :)

This is amazing. I actually mistook fish for real ones.

Out of curiosity, what do you usually charge for a pond like this one?
