'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Pond

I started work on this pond last year sometime,  I sadly did not take photos of the piece prior to the base paint and sand, even though it sat on my bench like that for about a year.  Pretty simple process, watched a few videos here and there on ponds etc.

Basic piece based on a CD.  Formed with silicone and paper.  Middle covered in paper to hide hole and the hot glued in place.  Basic rocks glued in place and everything given a base color as well as some white glue to add on some sand for texture.
Same piece but has now had diluted white glue spread across the initial sand to seal everything in place.
Extra flocking added (tea) to a few areas to represent a few grassy areas around the pond.
Grassy areas have color added as well as a white dry brush across the rocks.

Added some tall marsh grass as well as a bit of flocking around the edge of the pond.

Envirotex water.  Added a drop of blue and green paint and poured it into place.  Spread it around with a crappy brush to fill the corners.
