WIP Ancient Greek Statue

    Hi Guys,

    I thought I would post some pics of my latest "fit in" project (I seem to have a lot of them!!)

    One of the chaps from our club asked me if I could make him something that he could use as scenery in a new aquarium he is building, so we came up with an Atlantis theme. This statue is based on one of my Man Who Would Be King busts, with a helmet, shield and eventually a thunderbolt over his shoulder, made from Miliput. I am not overly concerned with total accuracy, as this is destined for the bottom of a fish tank, but I hope gives a rough impression of the style!

    Thanks for looking,

    Superb idea, may be need to consider to cast in some non toxic resin or food silicone, as I dont know if our putties dont secrete something chemical out overtime...Expensive fish dont need much to float up.

    Thanks, Gaudin - I shall cast it in a bonded porcelain material, like the commercial ones are, then given an enamel wash. That's the plan, anyway!(y)
