    }{@z3's Australian Cp VIv build (The Grotto)

    Hey guys now that i have enough pics to begin a thread i figured today would be a good day.

    sorry i never took a pic of the aquarium before i took the front off. this is a pic of after i got it off... lol obv. Gotta love a dremil. Ive used it in almost every step so far and will still probly use it.



    inorder to get the front piece of glass of there was alot of cutting of silicone and also had to cut the top trim off as well. it was either take the top trim off in a section or take the whole thing off and it probly would have gotten broken.

    wanted to make a waterfall. thought it would go nicely. with all the pieces that had to be taken out i could have made sometyhing else.... lol

    made some pillars as well. as you can tell from the pink layer on my table carving takes alot off. NOTE the table was cleaned several times before carving the pillars.

    more evidence of the destruction of a dremil

    here all my carvings with the second coat of cement. 7 coats all together. lol people have said 3 or 4 is plenty but since the waterfall will obv have moving water i wanted to make sure it wasnt going to flake off.

    all painted up with a coat of epoxy. now waiting for it to dry.

    will keep everyone updated on how its going. hope everyone enjoys.
