FOR SALE - Miniature Koi and Turtle Altoids Pond by Bon-AppetEats FOR SALE - Miniature Koi and Turtle Altoids Pond by Bon-AppetEats
Here’s the newest tin pond going up on eBay tonight. :)

This one has a natural sand substrate, natural stones, moss for underwater plants, a small flower, handmade lily pads, two koi fish (one orange and white, one yellow and white), and two turtles (one swimming, one hiding in its shell on the rock).

I love the little turtles in this one. Especially the one in the water. :D

Details:

  • All koi, turtles, and lily pads were handmade from polymer clay.
  • The substrate is sand. The plants are moss.
  • The water is a clear resin.
  • The pond is in a large Altoids tin.
  • This pond is up for auction now. Bidding starts at $40.
  • All of my large ponds are truly one of a kind since I never duplicate them.
  • My commissions are closed at the moment, so this is the only way to get a pond if you want one now!

This is so cool! The little turtles and koi are absolutely adorable. And the water is solid so it doesn't spill, right? Really creative. If I wasn't broke at the moment I'd totally buy it.

this looks really great! I love your ponds~ ;w; they're so cute and pretty and create a really nice athmosphere :3
But I think when working on the kois, you should probably make the fins less round and a little more see through, to make them more realistic :3
