    Hi, Im trying to do an Egyptian theme for my Sandfish skinks.
    This is the pyramids I made. I am now just a bit stuck with my background, It is going to take time. I will keep posting the progress.
    Let me know what you think.

    It looks great, can't wait to see the finished project. What kind of medium are you using for the background. When I was in Egypt I purchased several papyrus prints with pictures and hieroglyphics. Something like that would be great on the background and sealed with polyurethane. You seem to be very artistic, you could always paint a background yourself with an Egyptian theme.
    Keep us posted with updates on your enclosure. Have fun, wish I was there.

    Wow, that must have taken a while. Nice job so far.
    Perhaps go with a sand dune background look.
    Or oasis.

    Impressive pyramids - sure they're Egyptian and not Aztec, though? They look really like that big one in Chichen Itza, in Mexico. Not that the animals have an appreciation for world history...

    Very true, The idea that got me going was when I saw pictures of the Nubian and Aztec pyramids. Then I just went on with the creation, even though I might have changed the design a bit - LOL. So if they are not egyptian pyramids, oops ;) My history is not that great, :eek: but from what I know egypt is all about im gonna try it. If there are a few others added in then it will just make the skinks viv more unique. :)
