According to my plans last one month, I had now came to my stage #8 -- Add in DIY ornament and decoration

Last week till today, I had been busy all the time for my first DIY ornament in my life, as I decided to go for a classic greek pillars looking, I had been go round Singapore but couldn't find a suitable one at last, so I decided to DIY to the size that I want. Here some pictures will tells you how I go about it:

1. To model the base I used polyfoam because it's easlier to get the right shape that I want. Of course, polyfoam is a floawing substance, so I need to add on more weight to it with the white cement and sea sands, that are the materials usually uses in the DIY live rocks. :heh:

Haha... I need to use the bottle to model the base part of the pillar...

Do you know my wife and I had consumed 5 bottles of vitagen after our dinner just because I have 5 pillars in total. :cry:

Same to the wooden substances, they were coated epoxy resin to prevent from water rotted.

Here is the clear epoxy resin comes with 4 liters of Base and 1 liter of hardener, usually ppl using it to paint the outer layer of ship to prevent metal in contact with sea water and become rotten.

So, basically, my ornament is all coated with this epoxy resin to prevent all toxic chemical leaks into the aquarium. Of course, it's wise to use less toxic material unless no choice. :evil:

Here are the paint materials... Mainly white cement's itself, acrylic paint and acrylic epoxy spray...

The acrylic epoxy spray was what I had been used in the past which I painted my 3ft seahorse tank the other ornaments and was proven very safe for my Reidi and others horses, Now I even coated with another layer of epoxy resin to enhan the protection.

Good planning work here and kudos for the effort in doing the beams. Not to mention selecting the livestock and conditioning them. Can't wait to see your master piece.
