Miniature Koi Pond by Bon-AppetEats Miniature Koi Pond by Bon-AppetEats
Miniature koi pond. Made from polymer clay and resin.

After seeing Mel’s tutorial a couple of years ago, I finally decided it’s time to make a koi pond of my own!

I changed a few things around and added some plants and different textures to the bottom of the pond. I don’t quite care for the rocks but it’s all I could find on such short timing (I want to take at least a couple of these with me to Orlando).

The pond almost didn’t make it. I poured too much resin for the final layer and it flowed out and over the sides. I left it overnight and came back to it firmly stuck to my tile. I managed to pry it loose and have learned for my second attempt to make the wall around the pond even. :P

If I can find a way to do it, I'll be trying miniature fish tanks next!

Yes!! That makes me happy :D

Do you paint the koi by hand? Or is it different colors of clay? I really want to try and make a koi fish pond, but I don't have a lot of experience working with clay (not that that will stop me from trying!)

The link in the description will take you step by step through everything. It's where I learned how to make the ponds and koi. Good luck! :)

Wow! This is absolutely stunning! In my opinion I think it's the best you've done. Do you think I should post my creations? I feel kinda bad at clay compared to you. 😁
