In Flux In-stalled

So I have finally installed phase one of my In Flux installation.  Please see the prior posts for more info on the beginning of the project.  Today I will be showing you the processes leading up to and including the installation.

So initially I thought I would video myself blowing this up.... it took an hour and a half to blow up.
 I can't begin to express to you the sheer joy of heating the end of this stand to cherry read and then driving it 3.5 feet deep into the foot of the styrofoam and having it work perfectly.

 Like I said, perfectly.  Here's a coat of white primer.

 Followed by some paint.

 I planed this wood down to a thickness to make it look like it was submerged in the puddle and then stained the top to look like a used popsicle.
