Ok, here it is, If it makes it! LOL



Parts List:

Foam--3.16
Pump--7.99
plastic tubing--0.40
Urn--1.99
pond plant basket--2.98
paint/sealer--1.25

total----17.77

I cut the foam out and painted it. Then I made the skull and popped it into the hole I made for it in the foam. cut openings in the pond plant basket for the pump and tubing and ran it into the back of the foam. Easy, but took a while for me! LOL :jol:

Three Q's other people have asked, I'm curious about, too.

what's the skull made out of?, What's mixed with the water?, what did you use to protect the foam?

Nice job DFBL!

See, and you thought sewing was your only passion! :D

Cool fangs... well at least ya stuck with one idea :p
:p LMAO baby! You can say that again!

Sweet little fountain you have there. I was wondering what you made the skull from.
It's made from the scrap pieces of foam from when i cut the small toe pincher stone, which is actually a left over scrap piece of foam from the Tombstone I had made for the 2006 tombstone challenge. LOL Did I confuse ya with that one? I'm getting a how to in pics together as I write this and when its done I'll post a link for ya, sound good? :>

For the paints I got some mistints from my Sherwin William store and mixed them to get the color I wanted. I actually mixed a blue-gray color with a brown to get that look. LOL They are the Exterior Latex paints---A-100, Sherwin Williams brand. And the sealer that I use is a concrete sealer by Stone Mason. Its formulated for Interior and Exterior applications.

I will be posting a link for a how to when I get it all together. :> Thanks for all your vonderful comments! I had a blast making this thing. And now I'm itching for summer to be over so I can get more pumps on sale! LOL hehehe
