How to Make a Ship in a Bottle - Odysseus and the Sirens: Part 5

 

In this part of the tutorial we create the water in the bottle.

 

I made a stand for the bottle out of foam board.

Next we add the water to the bottle.

Casting resin - Alumilite

I am using alumilite clear cast. It is a two part resin and very easy to use.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mix the resin

You simply pour equal amounts of the two parts into a container. I am using a clear glass container so I can see the color.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add blue food coloring

I added two drops of blue food coloring and stirred it thoroughly. Now it will begin to set but it takes hours so we have time to work with it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pour resin into bottle

I made a long spout out of a paper towel tube then poured the resin into it so it filled the bottom of the jug.

 

 

 

 

 

The water looks good

It looks good. Set it aside and keep it nice and level for 24 hours while that resin sets.

NextLet's continue and install the ship
