Question Making custom decorations

Hey guys,

Total noob here to the forums. I'm located in Australia so kinda hard to find info on this so far, but I'm looking at making custom decorations and props for tank set ups (for a friend's birthday and personal use). I am planning on designing the item in clay and making a mould to then cast it. What sort of resin would you guys recommend? I've heard that most types are totally fine if you let them cure for a few days/weeks outside the tank. Also looking into any sort of paints suitable for finishing the decorations off.

My first build will be for a small 20L (5.3gal) tank to be planted lightly for some Ghost shrimp, I will post some a progress post when I get the materials and make it up

Cheers in advance,
