Arrow What epoxy to use for DIY 3D background?

Okay... with this whole DIY background... I've got it all figured out. The pieces fit, concrete is on, have sillicone sealant ready... have read up on everything...

but I have NO idea what epoxy resin to use. Can anyone post pictures or link to me to a suggested product? I've gone to like Home Depot/Menards and tried to ask around but they had no idea.

2g eclipse hood, 1g hex betta, 10g planted (soon: dwarf puffers), 20g empty (soon: guppy mania tank), 29g eclipse hood empty, 55g community tank
