More pond tins. This time it’s a couple of the small tins. These are coming with me to Omni Expo, so they are not available for purchase a the moment.
Fish are made of polymer clay, as is the frog. The water is made from resin.
If you do want a pond, fear not! I'm making a special one just for eBay that will be up by Monday. The pond for auction will be a large Altoids tin pond with two koi fish, a frog, and a turtle (one of my brand new additions ). Keep a lookout for the journal entry I'll make when it goes live!
Sorry for so many images crammed into one post. I’m very short on time and I wanted to make sure I posted all of the ponds I’m taking to Omni Expo this weekend.
And if you’re near or in Orlando this coming weekend, here’s some info on Omni Expo:
When: May 23 - 25, 2014
Where: Marriott World Center in Orlando, FL
I will be there all three days at Table 15 in the Artist Alley.
I know I've been slow posting here, but I'm really active on both tumblr and Instagram. My username on Instagram is bon_appeteats if anyone wants to follow me there.
More 1:12 koi ponds, metal tubs, and barrels. Fish made from polymer clay and the water is resin.
Commission for an Altoids Chewing Gum pond tin with a blue lobster, a tiny school of fish, and an axolotl.
1:12 Koi in handmade pots. Koi fish are made from polymer clay and the water is made from resin. Pots were made by Alex Meiklejohn.
I know you all are probably sick of koi fish by now, but I made these pots for my miniature show yesterday and I just had to post them. I really love how Alex's pottery and when I first saw the large planter pots, I knew I'd have to use them for my koi pieces.
All but the two koi in the small bowl are available still. I'll have them up in my Etsy shop tomorrow, as well as all the other items from my show.
Edit: Since I've been getting a lot of the same questions, I thought I'd answer them here.
* The fish are not real. They were handmade from polymer clay.
* The water is not real water - it's resin.
* I do not have any of these for sale at the moment, and there is currently a waiting list for any that do come back from the convention. I am trying to figure out a way to make more of these so I can list them on Etsy though!
* My commissions are closed at the moment until May 30 or June 1. I am a bit backed up on people wanting ponds so there may be a wait for them.
Thank you guys for all the watches, comments, and favorites! I wish I could reply back to everyone but dA would flag me for spamming if I did.
The first ponds are finally finished and the resin has cured! I am so excited. They came out so great.
This is my husband's tin pond for his desk at work. He requested a tiny frog for his.
Hey guys! As most of you know, I had some issues with this tin that resulted in the initial resin pour being...fuzzy? Shame it had to happen to my favorite tin, but that's the way it seems to go! :/
I've put up this tin on eBay at a starting bid of $5 with no reserves. Hopefully someone will give it a good home.
This tin has corals, anemones, two clown fish, a ray, a little hermit crab, sand dollars, and real tiny sea shells. It has a base of white sand. All of the items in the tin minus the sea shells were handmade from polymer clay, and the water is made from a clear resin.
This tin took me roughly 15 hours to make, not including the two days it took for the resin to dry between pours.

This was my first time sculpting an octopus. I really love how this tin turned out. I will definitely have to add more octopi into other ocean tins!
I finished up my orchids and took some proper pictures of them. These are presents for my grandmother and mom for Mother’s Day…which I almost completely forgot about. D:
I was aiming for 1:12 scale, but I think these are 1:6. I’m pretty sure the pots are 1:6 scale.
First attempt so it’s not the best, but I’ll work on it. I’d love to incorporate flowers into my koi items.
