    Here’s a piece I finished a while ago, but forgot to post.
    It’s a 1:48 scale polar bear from MiniNature’s shapeways shop (a 3D print).

    Water is coloured epoxy resin with acrylic paste waves.
    Ice is a combination of an epoxy cast, pieces of acrylic sheet and acrylic paste with and without microballoons.

    I chose the disproportionate dimensions to indicate the melting of the polar bear’s habitat.

    Pictures are not so great, but there’s not too much to see anyway....

    Thanks for showing.
    What an outstanding, thought-provoking piece, telling a complex story with seemingly little effort: just one animal, a bit of ice and a large body of water... Have I mentioned that I really love this one?

    Hi Adrian

    That's a nice piece of modelling , liking the actual colour of the bear and the ice looks good , like the fact it's below waterline with the animals weight

    Agree with Karl's comments

    It's good to see something different ...hopefully not your last animal

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    Agree with all the comments above. A beautiful piece with an unfortunate, but true, storyline. MiniNatures Shapeways shop has a lot of great animals. It is good to see one being used in such a creative way.

    The beast is searching for some morsal to satisfy its hunger pains in a most inhospitable environment.

    A simple but effective display. Well done Adrian! (y)

    Adrian, this is nothing less than superb.
    I love the rendition of the water & ice. I've always wanted to do something like that but have never had the bottle.
