Rainworks: A reason to smile on a rainy day.

This is the first large-scale rainwork I've made, and I'm looking for more ideas. If you have a good one, let me know in the comments and I might make it! Environmental note: the formula I use, once dry, is non-toxic, ecologically safe, and completely biodegradable.

More about the process:

I tried 3 different superhydrophobic sprays while developing the process, and the only one that was completely invisible when dry was Always Dry.
