New 2.5 Gallon Mini AquaScape

Following the same process used to replicate the stone terrace design, This new installable
background for a 2.5 gallon desktop aquarium is being designed in clay, then will be cast in Portland based
cement via silicone mold.

The silicone mold for this design will be a particular challenge due to the "undercut" contours of the background
pieces. In other words, the silicone needs to both cover all surface areas and be removable once a new cement replica is ready
to be taken from the mold. Details to follow as this project develops!

no, it was one of those projects that was put on the shelf indefinitely. I still have the clay pieces. Maybe someday, I'll get inspired to finish the project. They may be good candidates for my first mini background build with plastic resin. Still on my long term to-do list.
