    Adding water features to a board.

    Ok. I remember a long while ago there was an article about how to do rivers and lakes using some reisin for wood. I haven't seen this article in a few months, and I am looking to do some water on my board, and as a scenic base for my Aun'Shi model.

    If anyone can tell me where to get the stuff to do it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    May I ask which type of water you're trying to make? River? Sea? Swamp?
    I don't know about the article you mentioned but in WD305* there is a perfect explanation of how to create swamp water, and in WD300*, a river's construction is explained - this could be used for sea, too.

    Technically, this one is about the river on the board, and that one is for the base. ^_^ Also, after posting in here, I wasn't sure how much response I'd get in here.

    And thanks for the info. I'll look at the WD's around 300 next time I'm in the store.

    Ok here goes...

    When it comes to big rivers and deep lakes i can´t say much.
    But for smaller lakes and ponds it is easiest to get a hold of anything that sets to a hard solid form and still remains transparent.
    Easiest thing to to would be to make areas for small shallow lakes/ponds and just fill them with "atificial water" awaliable from woodland scenics.
    Take into consideration though that this stuff costs morre that your shirt plus a kidney but it absolutely works... ok not that expencive but in my case i paid some 20 pounds for it (stupid iMac by the way...doesn´t have the pound key!!!!)

    But back on topic, try that stuff, it makes a good finish. I´ll see it I can get some pics during my next leave...

    See ya!

    I use Woodland Scenics to provide my water effect. Also use parraffin wax to provide an ice effect. When I apply the water using the WS stuff I brush it on. It helps conserve the precious stuff and because it is self leveling it will look smooth when it hardens. To provide an interesting effect one can also use a hair dryer on the water effect to creat ripples. I dont rec. the WS product that you have to melt and use. It stinks and can create a crazing effect on the paint because of the difference in temperatures. However it does create an interesting surface water look. The last photo was shows the melted plastic bead resin.
