As always these mini challenges have a very wide interpretation of what they could include.
So for me on this challenge I went forward with a double combo of Fails....
The story of the piece is one of a little boy who wants to go fishing near the river. However his simple pole and string fishing rod gets snagged on the bushes when trying to cast it off. Making it a fail of sorts for what the little boy wanted to achieve anyways.
The combo fail here though is the water effects. I have always steered clear of doing water effects due to the major risk of failure upon using them. This challenge gave me a chance to try again cause well, if I failed then.. it just fits into the theme.
I had started to work on the water effects starting on Monday of this week, and it just never really dried enough to fully cure, even though I gave it a few tries and styles over the week. Ultimately it is failed, as it was not the solid piece of clear resin water that I was hoping for, but instead a wavy mess on top, and missing of structure below. It also seeped into the sides where I have the plasticard to hold it in.. and that ruined the sides of the socket that I used here.
I guess it is not fully an epic fail overall, but it is a fail as I was hoping to have a much better looking socket with the water there. But at the same time the wavy effects looks interesting all the same.
Hope you all like it.. and now to go back to batch painting!
