In tank


Note the colour difference between the original render and the newer render, it took 4 days for the orginal to dry so i am hoping the new will come into line with the old, if it doesnt i will run a complete light layer of new render over the top, i want it to match! So fingers crossed. I did take note of render/oxide/water mix this time so it should match lol Time will tell. At least with just having to throw i light layer over it will be dry by the weekend, ready to seal again.



Now the black cloth tape: I use this to tidy the tank, this is a very old very well used tank and was looking a bit ratty around the edges, so i tape them so the front of the tank essentially ends up like a picture frame, handy for old tanks.

Yep there is a ring in rock, i didnt make enough so will make some more, but they need time to cure. So the ring in will be replaced when new ones are ready and then it will all match in

Acrylic render
Cement Oxides (sandstone is the main colour on this one)
Styrofoam

I really only had to buy the render for this one (and only used about 1/2 the bag). The oxides colours i've had for ages (bought years ago) & the foam is free

So prolly actually cost me way less than $20
