Dont forget the flotsam & The Algea/Kelp in the wash area :thumb:

PS: you read Dave Frary warning about WS Water right??


I was going to use Woodland Scenics water. Now I'm not not sure what to use. I don't think I should use anything that generates much heat. I've been told to use 'Magic Water' or 'Envirotex'. I thought about using clear silicone.
Darn, I'm confused now.

How about Modgepodge Gloss Acrylic!! :thumb:

Stipple it on for light windswept waves....You can buy it in the Walmarts craft section.

They have Modgepodge Gloss acrylic and Matte acrylic (matte makes a good fixitive for scenery ;)

Runs around 5-6 bucks a jug (a pint or so)

I used "Magic Water".

It works great.

I added waves with "Water Effects".

I'm very close to being finished.

Magic Water is simple to use. Mix the 2 parts and stir for about 5 minutes and pour. Mixing it a lot is really important. It's very thin before it kicks. I did have a leak and had to make a second pour over the first. That was the only problem that I had and it was my fault. It takes about 24 hours to dry. When I poured it the humidity was very high and it still seemed a little soft the next day, so I let it sit for another day.

I'm suprised that there are no bubbles. With hand mixing I expected to find a few bubbles but there aren't any. It drys crystal clear too.

I ordered it on line on a Sunday night and had it 2 days later. That impressed me too. I'll definatly use this stuff again.

The "Water Effects" takes a little practice to use. I used a pallet knife and pushed it forward and then dragged the knife backwards to make little waves. It's sort of like icing a cake.
