So it's time to check in....and I'm happy (bored?) to report: absolutely nothing! They appear to be exactly the same after 2 years! I lightly dusted them with a wet rag (had to dab on the Scenic Water one as it is a gel consistency as opposed to the others which have a solid surface). And inspected them. And I didn't see any significant change in two products, and only a minor change in the other one.
Here they are (Then and Now photos):
|THEN: First few days of the water effects|
|NOW: Water effects as of today...looks pretty much the same.|
|THEN: Day 1 of EnviroTex Pour-On in Painted Bowl|
|NOW: EnviroTex Pour-On in Painted Bowl is the same|
|THEN: First few days of EnviroTex Pour-On|
|NOW: EnviroTex Pour-On is basically the same as it was 2 years ago...|
|THEN: Day 1 of Solid Water, cloudy issues starting at bottom|
|NOW: Solid Water did seem to react some more with birdbath color/material or it has yellowed a bit.|
|THEN: First few days of Scenic Water|
|NOW: Scenic Water still there, bubbles and all...|
|NOW: Noticed pock marks in the surface but I can't recall if they were there before.|
In fact, I had made a pond that took 3 different pourings of EnviroTex to get the depth I needed (as you can only pour roughly 1/8" or so at one application). After 1-1/2 years of sitting, no cracks have formed, no pulling away from the edges, no issues whatsoever! So even my deep water example is good (except for all the bubbles that were in it as I poured it)!
|My little pond, complete with fish and bubbles...|
|...so many bubbles. Bubbles! BUBBLES! My bubbles. (It's a "Finding Nemo" reference for those of you who aren't crazy like me.)|
|From a distance and without direct light on it, you don't really see the bubbles though.|
And for those of you that have made it this far into the blog post: Yes, it's been several months since my last post. Things got stressful over the summer and I spent more time at the doctors than I would have liked, but I'm back and fairly healthy, so I'm attacking my miniature projects again! However, the many summer weeks with more mental energy than physical energy did add two more personal projects to my mental list of projects I want to do and I will be working on them this winter!
Meanwhile, I still have my Mansion to work on! Mansion is currently flipped upside down so I can paint and install the Ballroom Ceiling (sneak peek pic below). Need to get the ceiling finished and flip the house right side up again so that I can then finish the exterior of the addition!
|I have a lot of these little bits on the Ballroom Ceiling to paint in the next few weeks.|
