ARTIFICIAL MINI FOUNTAIN

This was one of my long time dream .Finally i learnt it from someone in Purshavalkam.she was a nice lady.... taught lot of tips.This was also one among bit expensive work ....but many learnt this from me.

Model which i have written here is a very simple one but different models can be made using broken small pots,small lamps, or pvc pipes etc.i have tried my best to explain it thru writing.but its better understood demonstrating(since my work is in india i am not able to post the photo. will try to post a model and if possible a demo too)

MATERIALS NEEDED:

1.Shallow pot
2.Motor
3.Thermocol
4.Tube
5.White cement
6.Brush
7.Paint
8.Gloves
9.Varnish
10.Dolls and plastic plants to decorate

METHOD:

1.Take a base for the fountain(a shallow pot like that used for bonsai)
2.Place the motor(to pump out water)with tube
3.Break thermocol into small irregular pieces(to look like stone)
4.Make paste with white cement and water
5.Dip the thermocol in cement and keep fixing in the shape of mountain .(try to hide the motor)
6.Insert the tube ( water to flow)from motor in place and take the tube to back of the mountain and proceed with fixing thermocol.
7.Now place the other end of the tube(where u want the water to flow out from) and finish the design u had in mind.
8. Paint using fabric or oil paint
9.Finially varnish

NOTE:PLZ USE GLOVES WHEN HANDELING WHITE CEMENT AS IT WILL CAUSE BURNS IN HAND .
