FOR SALE - Large Altoids Tin Koi Pond by Bon-AppetEats FOR SALE - Large Altoids Tin Koi Pond by Bon-AppetEats

Edit: Since I'm getting a lot of the same questions, I'll answer them here.
- The water is just clear resin.
- The fish are made from polymer clay.
- No, the animals are not real.
- This was done over the course for three days.
- As the koi ponds are one of my popular items, I will not be making a tutorial or explaining how to make parts of them. Sorry!



A one of a kind large Altoids tin koi pond is now available on eBay!

It features two koi fish (one black and white, one calico), a turtle, and a frog, all hand sculpted from polymer clay. It also has some underwater plants, stones, and a crushed slate substrate.

The auction is now closed. Thank you very much to those of you who bid!

I place everything so nothing gets crushed when the lid is closed.

Where did you get the clear resin?
And it is such a great idea, with the little lake  in a box. Such kind of small things, that can be in your pocket, and that you can look at and do nothing but smile.

I believe it's poured resin :) I think Bon-AppetEats describes the process she used on some of her other koi ponds.

The fact that so many people thought that the fish were real is a true testament to your skill as an artist and sculptor. Well done! This is a beautiful piece (and wow for the clarity of the resin, no bubbles is some skill!) :)
