 i  just  made  a  3d  aquarium  background  with  thermocol  and  cement,  
 
 but  when  i  put  it  inside  aquarium  the  cement  pieces  are  crumbling  ,  so  white  sand  is  looking  dirty...i  searched  internet  but  it  says  to  coat  an  epoxy  resin,  from  some  other  indian  site  i  found  i  can  use  araldite  to  coat  the  cement...
 
 but  my  doubts  remaining  are
 
 1)it  is  very  difficult  to  coat  the  araldite  resin  ,i  doing  it  with  a  cloth  kept  in  my  finger....and  coating  is  not  good,  im  not  sure  this  is  the  right  way
 
 2)  any  other  epoxy  resin?  i  dont  know  any  brand  or  from  where  i  can  get  them...or  any  other  material?...some  sites  mentioned  coating  with  pond  sealer(no  idea  what/where  i  can  get  it)
 
 3)im  also  planning  on  making  another  3d  background  for  another  aquarium...but  this  time  i  want  to  try  painting  it  like  brown  rocks...from  internet  i  found  that....i  can  use  some  cement  colouring  additives  to  get  the  colour...another  option  is  to  coat  dark  brown  and  then  coat  light  brown  over  the  projections.....i  want  to  try  the  2nd  method.....but  what  paint  and  what  coating(epoxy  resin)  should  i  use?
 
 please  answer  my  doubts  and  also  suggest  some  alternatives  than  what  i  learned

 ya  i  coated  the  3d  background  with  "metal  coat  polyurethane  coating"after  coating  with  ¬†white  cement  +  black  oxide,  instead  of  normal  cement...my  bg  isnt  very  pretty....but  its  not  crumbling
 
 another  problem  was  after  coating  with  "metal  coat  polyurethane  coating"...i  saw  at  some  places  where  the  polyurethane  touched  the  thermol  melted...but  luckily  not  much
