How To Make an Aquarium Sandfall Using Habitat™


In this aquarium decoration tutorial video, we show how to Make Your Own™ aquarium sandfall.

A sandfall is a unique feature which gives the illusion of an underwater waterfall in an aquarium or water feature.

This diy tutorial features Habitat™ Black epoxy putty.  Free Form™ Habitat™ Black Epoxy Putty is a mix-by-hand putty that is used to create textured or highly detailed display pieces. Habitat™ Black is solvent-free and contains no VOC’s. Working time is 60 minutes and cure time is 16 hours at room temperature (73°F/23°C). Epoxy cures to a very hard, heat resistant material that is easily painted.

Use with Habitat™ Black Folding Powder – fold powder into epoxy putty to thicken and reduce sag when applied to a vertical surface. Folding Powder also reduces stickiness and makes the epoxy more handle-able.
