Building Medieval Docks #6

This is the bit I hate. Pouring the water....

The reason being that I have got used to using Woodland Scenics Realistic Water. This has the advantage that it's a water based acrylic water effect that you just pour straight from the bottle. The problem being that it takes an age to dry and I keep messing with it.

Luckily the damage caused by messing can be fixed by pouring another layer, but at some point it has to actually be left to dry. I started pretty much straight after the last blog post and have poured several layers since then... messing with them whilst I go.

I've just poured the last layer and to make sure I don't mess with it again I'm going away for the weekend. Ok.... Ok... I was going away anyway, but this will mean I won't have the temptation of messing with the piece.

The cloudiness in the water will go when it's dried.


  1. Inspired job, atmospheric and superb!

  2. Looks great Richard, as someone who has been up to my elbows in resin I understand how you feel. By its nature its a fiddly job, never used Woodland Scenics stuff though :-)

    1. Well its all been worth it. See my latest post. :)
