    Very interesting subject. I hope someone comes up with a web site where we can go to learn more. If so, please post. I always wanted to carve a fish that was jumping out of the water.

    Check out some of the taxidermy catalogs. They have good info on making splashing water and the material to use for it. WASCO is one catalog I use, I can't remember the other. An internet search will give you lots of info as well. Look for articles on making habitat.

    Captain, I cannot answer that question. I enter one carving into competition a year and never used the resin in it.
    Your question is a valid one. The bottom line for me is to artistically please myself.

    ??? I have a question regarding the use of plastic resins on habitat. If you are in a Juried Competition, will the use of a non-wood item on your carving disqualify you?

    Try West System Epoxy. Be careful when useing large amounts, epoxy resins generate a lot of heat when curing. Its very simple to use, as no odor, but is a little exspensive.

    artificial water and ice

    Does anybody know how to create artificial water and ice for a carving scenery? I have seen pictures in chip chats and from carving shows where it has been used but can not find anything on the subject. Any input would be appreciated.
