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. :)

One this size and with as much detail would be $275.

They vary in price depending on what's in the pond/the size of the pond. Something this big with as much detail would be $275.

Dude, that's awesome! I wish I could make stuff like that, but I'm absolutely awful at sculpting. It would look like a giant blob if I'd tried doing something like that.

I would very much like a pond, or a few ha.
When you begin to make them once more if I may have one how would I go about purchasing one, that is if I may ask.

You can either note me here or convo me through Etsy. I prefer Etsy since I can turn a convo there into a custom order.

Cool one of the first things I seen upon logging in today was this.

I had some Koi as a teen and my friend had a pond, okay it was her moms'.
So I gave her them, Koi do not do well in a tank they'll get sick they need space.
Hahaha all three of them had Irish names. I don't know why I gave them all Irish names they simply seemed Irish to me. . . so maybe in a past life they where half Irish half Japanese? I don't know but I have run into a few people around town who are sooooo you never know.

I have moved away and I do miss my friend and my Koi. Needless to say another friend of mine is working on making a koi pond.
Heh fishy. Fish

Wow!  No other word for it.  Just incredible.  If you haven't already, I think you should go back and look at your first one, and then say "Wow!" yourself as well.
