I used Zoopoxy #307 sculpting putty over a 1" foam board, I created the shape with wire mesh covered that with ready wrap " plaster cloth " allowed to dry mixed the putty coated and shaped it applied some color pigment allowed to dry again used silicone and peat for background areas. All in all I spent maybe a hour total on each it really was quite easy.

Thanks Scott

Oh I forgot to mention it's non toxic " used in many exibits " and has no nasty smells.

What Mortar do you have? I hope it's not the stuff that everybody is using that eventually breaks down and flakes, I will not mention the name of that mortar on the board but if you PM i'll let you know if thats it, I'll have to find the details of where I got this I got a 2 Gallon kit for about 70.00 and have barely touched it. I could easily do 20 of these with that kit more if I do smaller surfaces.

Thanks, like I said this is just planted I think as it grows in it will be much better but I wanted to start with this size and than move to the larger one it will be about 4ft x 4 ft.

Nice start! I can't wait to see it grow up! I like the way the background looks.

Where did you get the zoopoxy #307 sculpting putty?

Default building process

I don't, but I am going to make another for a third 20H and could take some pics and either E-mail or post them. Please note that due to the use of materials no two would ever be the same without alot of planning but I like it that way.
