Gold Fish bowl

This is one of the crafts I had always wanted to do with my Toffee and Sophie elves box. Yes. I am still learning how to do things and, its really frustrating.

I started with the UV resin and mold. The first time I use a 3 D mold. It was so challenging.

Fill in the mold with resin and start adding the elements. For this project, I have fake grass( bought from K mart)

Just keep adding the elements, cure them with UV light- to make the " floating illusion."

Dust a bit of "goldfish" color. I am making names here. FYI.

Put a bit of a resin on both sides- cure.

Put a bit of resin on both sides to act as glue and, "sandwich" it. Cure as usual.

This is how it looks when its out of the mold. There are other items here that were for another project but, I cannot find any "gold fish" for this post so I used this.

Continue adding resin until you'll have something like this.
