Lovely. I eventually want to do a viv like that.

To do that melting thing in the early stages (when the foam goes from white to gold-ish/brown), did you use a blow/hair-dryer?

I used tinner and soldiring gun to melt it.BUt many ppl are using hair dryers too.That goldish colour is a kind of pool cement.Thank you all for nice comments
