15mm Water Fountain

Captain's Blog Stardate 201202.19

I made a 15mm water fountain using a Pringles can lid and a bubble gum machine candy container. I used Gorilla Glue to glue the bubble gum candy container because the Pringles lid is flexible and I am not sure if superglue would hold. After priming and painting, I poured some triple thick gloss on top of the fountain to give it a water shine.
(NOTE: I actually used a smaller candy container than the one in the picture)


  1. Great imaginative modeling, Capt!

  2. Determine the proper water level for your fountain. An average is to refill two times a week. When you are not at home, it can be beneficial if you unplug the fountain to extend the motor life and to make sure the pump does not go dry, which could damage the motor.

  3. Wow, didn't know making water features was this easy :) Can't wait to try this out with the kids to decorate their rooms!
