How to make the water fountain.ice fountain. Since my fountain needed running water, I ended up making many modifications.
My fountain began with a dollar store trophy, a plastic chess piece and some old packaging.
I first applied a coat of gesso then painted the fountain with tan acrylic paint. While it dried, I cut an office transparency sheet into little strips.
Next, I set the chess piece atop a higher surface and then added glossy accents to each of the strips. After coating the first strip with Glossy Accents, go to the strip opposite it to add Glossy Accents. Keep alternating sides of the chess piece where you add the accents so that one side does not get too heavy and topple over.
