I would have loved to have had a real Koi Pond..but with the weather conditions here it would not be advisable.
BINGO!! I said to my self...
why not...so I painted one.
Here is my completed inspired painted project.
My company love to sit around the pond, while they visit.
It is a great conversation piece.
The fish are about 8-10 inches long.

How to Make MY PATIO PAINTED KOI POND

Step-by-Step

  • 1Clean you cement slab with soap and water..
    Rinse well. Let dry.
    Paint the undercoat.
  • 2Paint the water in for the back ground.
    Pencil on the shape fish you want in your pond,
    also a couple water lilies.
    Get out your paint and brushes..and start painting!!
    Take your time, a little painting every day...
    will get it done.
    Be sure to paint in a few bubbles,
    and wavy water lines.
    When you are satisfied with your results...spray with polyethylene to seal.
  • 3I have mine on the covered patio, away from the sun.
    Taking a chance in a sunny place, might fade my pond.
    I have had it outside for 3 years now..
    Best part is, they will not freeze, I don,t have to feed them, they won't die, or be fish napped!
