    Clear plastic wallets make for great frozen rivers. Just paint the river a shade of dark grey, and glue the plastic down with some watered down PVA. The end result is fantastic

    Well you've come to the right place my friend. I do everything in snow from the bases of my figures to all of my custom scenery, ect. Follow the link in my sig about the custom objective markers or to the iron chef of scenery and scroll to the bottom. There you will find my methods of snow basing. I use something called Snowtex which I get from Michael's Craft store in the glue and paint isle. It is simply amazing and good luck. As for the iced look I would paint the base of the river you want to. Then use a glossy finish and paint that with a drop of light blue mixed into it over the river. This will give you the wet look. Onto of that coat some of the snowtex stuff, wait for it to dry and then coat the snow tex in the gloss finish. It should look icy.

    as far as rivers, I'm going to make a small pond/river inlet that i'm intending on using a new material, to see if I can pull it off.

    If it works, i'll get back to you and let you know.
    Sho: out.

    The material i'm going to try to use...
    is Lighting fixture covers!

    THose think pieces of hard plastic they use to cover the box/square florescent lights in an office.
    Some of them have diamond pattern (not using those)
    but I went to Home Depot and found they have a plethora of covers in differing styles.

    One that I picked up, has a sort of Iced over/crystaline look to it.
    I'm figuring paining the one side blue/white and cutting into rough shapes. we can try small chunks of river ice, or a completely iced over look. I'll post some pics tonight.

    Here is an example of what i'm talking about:
    Malcolite Plastics | Flat Lens
    (The one I bought has a different texture than those shown on that site)
    Sho: out.
