Depth in an ice scene

Submitted by John on 3/4/02. ( )

Im doing an ice scene with a conpletely exposed piece of ice above a perch. I was wondering if there is a way to give the ice depth (thickness).I was going to use a piece of plexi glass for the top and then make a few pours of envirotex but I would like the thickness to be about 2-3 inches.Ive looked in the archives and could not find any helpfull info. Any one have any ideas Thanks

You could cast it

You could make a clay sculpture the shape of the ice and make a latex mold and cast it. Use polyester resin, sometimes called clear scenery resin. Make sure and under catalize it. pour small amounts and wait till they harden before the next pour. Or, you could use plexiglass and build up the layers with resin. Envirotex is not cost effective if you want it thick.
Good Luck
