My friend has just completed her masters in sculpture and had a surplus of clear casting resin that she invited me to play with.

I decided to make something to jazz up her plain patch of lawn.

I went to the local pet store and bought some huge bags of that gravel you put in fish tanks - except this was super lovely pink glittery gravel!

Then dug out an old cake tin, the sort where the bottom pops up and out.

I lined it with some thin plastic sheeting, poured in the gravel and then poured on a layer of the resin, making sure the gravel 'poked' up a bit to make a tread (resin is very slippery)

once dry I popped out a beautiful circular slab, the fact that the resin is clear made the gravel look amazing.

this x 8 and we dug out holes and laid a fab hot pink path up the lawn,

I'll post pics after I see her this weekend.
