::I just finished building a waterway and falls from Winterstone. This works like clay and dries without firing. It does need sealing to be absolutely waterproof, however. I sculpted it in several layers over an armature of scultor's mesh and burlap with a base of fine damp sand, but there are several ways to do this, including simply molding it like clay. It's white, but can be tinted with powdered tints or painted later.
::The project isn't yet finished. I'm adding rocks to the falls and stream.
::The fountain pump is located in the pool under the volcanic rock. The entire thing is self-contained. The water pumps from the pool with two outlets, one over falls on the left and the other into the stream at the right. After testing, any leaks or corrections can be made with more of the Winterstone as it adheres to itself and nearly everything else very well.
::Now, I'll see if I can add the images, klutz that I am.
:where did you buy this clay? Internet, craft store.....looks very interesting. I might try this. :)
There are two outlets in the US. I found it accidentally, as one of my hobbies is wood carving. My son, who is a stone sculptor had never heard of it. It's a dry powder that mixes with water somewhat like plaster, but dries stone hard. It can also be carved like stone when hard or partially fixed. I hope this doesn't break the rules. I have no vested interest in this, except it works:
The Compleat Sculptor--Phone 212 243-6074 (NY) They have a Website, too with online ordering. I think it's simply compleatsculptor.com., but that should get you close. The other I found listed is Ball Consulting in Colorado 970-663-5190. I could find no outlets in Europe, but there is one in Canada and one in Australia. To date, I've never seen it in stores such as Wall Mart or Home Depot, but you might inquire. Patty
