"Under the sea"- 3D Key holder

3D Key Holder


Hi and welcome to my post on how I made this "Under the Sea" key holder....
This was a completely hand-moulded, made-to-order piece for my cousin......
I used a wooden piece 3x6" in size, as the base for this key holder.....
I painted the base with acrylic colors in shades of blue and left it to dry.......
Then I hand-moulded epoxy to make the fishes, shells, plants, turtle, octopus, starfish and 
the bubbles.......
After arranging the creatures and the foliage, I moulded some epoxy pebbles for the 
base and some epoxy borders for the top corners......
Then came the fun part.....coloring !!!
I used bright acrylic colors for all the creatures....I wanted them to look happy!!
Then I added some 3D glitter for the waves and the design was complete.....
Lastly I added some hooks to hang the keys....after all thats what it was for ;)
It turned out pretty cute, and my cousin absolutely loved it !!!
Thank you for reading, and do let me know if you liked it .... :)
