Background Idea

Recommended Posts

So I have an idea for a background. My tank is Egyptian themed and so the background is going to be two pyramids and the sun setting inbetween.

Here's very a rough sketch:

So here is my plan thus far... I'm going to get a nice, sturdy, type of poster board and paint it with the design above with so nice bright colors. Then I would modg podge (spelling?) it with the outdoor kind and attach it to the back.

Thoughts?

With my south park background, I used acrylic paint and posterboard. Then a spray that sets the paint. You can find it in any craft store with the paints. It is used mostly for oil paintings. So if your store splits up the paints into "adult"/"child" paints like mine does, look in the oil pain section. Then I just used packaging tape to seal the edges to the tank. That was about 6 months ago and the background still looks perfect.

I'm planning on sketching it out and painting it... I'm not the best artist so it might take awhile to figure it out.

It looks really good! It's like what is in your tank is in the Nile, and everything else is off in distance. Cool idea. :)
