Last photo before judging.  All primed up. 

Managed to paint the base and toned down the bushes to an acceptable level of green.  I also managed to mix some of my new resin to test for adverse reactions with the ink I am using to tint.  Left for this evening is to seal up the waterways to make sure there are no leaks so hopefully I can pour the resin tomorrow.

I have actually finished up at this point and have taken my final photos so I can do a mosaic.  One point.  Never use the Pebo Crystal resin from Hobbycraft.  My last bottle of my regular resin had gone off so I had to improvise.  Currently I am 96 hours into a 24 hour cure and all of the surfaces are still tacky.  After my test batch I made sure that I mixed the living hell out of it (five min of stirring) and measured by weight so I am sure it is the resin.  Just waiting to do the submission.

My sympathies on the resin. I hope that this resolves soon. Luckily you finished early (me too) and have time for it to cure before photographing.

I hope the resin cures soon. Your warning about the resin does concern me as I am planning to use resin on my build (it will be the first time I have used resin to make water/ice)  but I need to finish it and paint it first. Luckily I have bought a different brand to the one you mention so hopefully it will be OK. I look forward to seeing the pictures of your finished pieces!

If you purchased it from a company that supplies resin then you should be OK.  Unfortunately with the box stores like Hobbycraft here do not seem to remove product that has sat there too long.  I had it happen before with resin from Hobby Lobby in the States.  Whole package was unusable and I am glad that I did not ruin my mould at the time.
