Cougar the splash mount has around 20 hrs in just the resin work because it's all freestyle construction in place. The redhead piece, the water was sculpted in clay then a mold made. After approximately six hrs in the sculpting and mold it was simply a matter of pouring the cast. The next one someone wants will only take minutes.

still looks like moving water simpily awesome in my aspect. for the grass did you just drill a hole to fit it in. I don't think I could get my clay mold to look at awesome as that you should do an actual rubber mold of that for the bases of that style or a bigger mold like 15x 24. you could make a couple bucks. I I know Id buy one because when you think divers you think ruff cold water and that's exactly what that makes me think of.

Yep just drilled holes and used silk grass. I made a reusable silicone mold and keep a extra cast in case I need to make another mold. I do intend to sculp other designs as I need them and will make reuseable molds for future use.

Tip, keep the silicon molds in a sealed container. Or be prepared to give them a good cleaning each time. They collect dust big time.
