THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS


There is a legend in ancient times that if you lived your life well, when you passed from this earth, you would be greeted by the Angel of The Fountain of Living Waters to help you along your journey in the after life.

I made this fountain as a submission for a challenge to the Relics and Artifacts Tribe on Facebook using Ice Resin. I can't believe this is my first experience using the Ice Resin by Susan Lenart Kazmer, but you can be assured it won't be my last. It is truly amazing stuff. 
The fountain consists of archival casts from Sandra Evertson's exquisite line of Relics and Artifacts, using the blanks Coquille, Egg Shrine and Mythos.
I painted the blanks with arcylic paints and used Relique Powder Iced Enamel and flakes. I added tiny clear beads to resemble water and painted over areas with Ice Resin to give it that shine and to fill my "Shell water well" using the clear beads and Ice Resin.

I am very happy with the results and my  list has grown tremendously of all the ways I can use this Ice Resin, so I am sure you will be seeing more of it from me in the future. A big Thank you to Sandra Evertson for her Magical Playground of Relics and Artifacts. If you haven't been there, I invite you to visit her site, you will be in for a real treat! 
Thank you for visiting today. You can find this creation and more in my Etsy Shop, see the side links!

Have a wonderful day!

  2. Thank you Lynne. Your comment means a lot. I just jumped in blindly with this piece. Although I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do with it, I had not played with the ice resin yet. I think I would now have done a few things differently but all in all, I am pretty happy with the results and I have found a new addiction!!
