Please wait!!!

Just trying the woodland scenics realistic water right now!

Trying different colours of paint then pouring this over the top, it looks like it may well need to be a mix of paint colours to get the desired effect coming through.

Only just poured it out, it's very thick but does flow quite well, leaves a very smooth top edge, the painted base can be seen straight through it.
It does say build up in layers of 1/8 of an inch, will post again tomorrow, when it's had chance to dry.

There is another way which I'm also testing is using straight from the bottle PVA glue mixed with a green acrylic paint which is slightly translucent.
By slapping on quite thick layers of PVA should give a nice uneven effect.
Hopefully as the PVA dries clear the colour should come through quite nicely, I may even try mixing some paint with the woodland scenics stuff see how that turns out.
