Being Koi

This started as something else, then I had the idea to use crushed glass, self-leveling clear gel, other gels, and acrylic paint on canvas board. It really just came together as a pond with a Koi fish inside.

I started with a base of deeper color, then laid the crushed glass, and held it in place with clear gel.

The lillies were originally rocks but morphed into the former when I went away from a flowing river concept.

The lillies are made from gold and metallic colors, filled with clear gel, and dusted with a translucent white gel to represent reflection.

In full light, I’m sure that it will sparkle more.
