Step 2: Coloring of Rock
For coloring of rock i used black ,burnt umber ,raw umber & yellow ocher colors .i took 1 part color & 16 part water ,mix it well now take foam brush for good result .Apply two colors first then leave for drying .After drying apply scenic cement on rock ,Now use black color ,leave for dry .Again apply scenic cement on it.

For making of rain fall take PVA glue and glass or any hard sheet ,spread glue on it with the help of finger just like i did .let it dry ,Apply white color on dry glue strip like i did.
Step 5: Epoxy Resin Water
Take small amount of epoxy resin ,add blue pigment & glitter in it . we required transparent & blue color epoxy both. Apply many thin layers in glass .Don't fill it at once because heat generated by epoxy break the bowl .
