Bait Shop Ice Chest Display

Ain't this exciting to look at?  This is actually faux ice and water, cast in the form of a try with a sunken monitor screen in the center.  I made the new tray as a refurbishment to an exhibit display in the Audubon Insecatrium's Beaudreaux's Bait Shop area.  I made it using faux plexi-glass cubes and a clear two-part epoxy.  It was a challenge, because the ice chest it drops into is an old one from the 1950's with a lot of dents in it, so I had to customize the shape after casting.
