Water effects   Leave a comment

Decided to add some deeper water to my river boards. See the original page.

Used Woodland Scenics EZ Water. Had it for a long time.

Heated it up – tried outside but it really needs a high flame so had to use the stove.

It dried hard and quick but with a yellow tinge I was not expecting. The river is a bit darker I suppose. Certainly my river is now deeper and wider. One thing I did not expect was that it warped my boards. As it dried it twisted the Ziterdes boards. If noticeable I might have to add some batons. Overall I think they do look better.

Have tried with some realistic water effects to see if can lessen the curve at the edge of the water.

Am currently working on some marsh bases. The first time I did these I was unhappy with the final result as the diorama marsh water I tried simply looked like green gloss paint when it dried. Now I have added some epoxy resin having built up the sides. Will see how it goes.

Edit – update the realistic water has still not fully dried after 24 hours.
