Fiber and Magic water...other resin pours|
Make a silcone caulk seal around the area you want to contain. Do a sealing pour that barely coats the whole surface. keep doing this until happy with seal.
Each layer was tinted either with grey, createx leaf green, or brown. 3 small tooth pick drops per 100 ml. The blue is from the painting of the base a mix of leaf green and blue. Looking to mimic the late summer, after a dry period where the green - blue tones are wanted. A general color for many of the large bodies of water flowing to the great lakes . First waterfalls, so don't laugh too hard.

the module base is wood, the scenery is a mix of foam, box cardboard, adhesive drywall tape followed by the application of modeling fiber. After that its a mix of using a wet brush, palette knife, and adding ground covers, allow to dry. Or you can wait for two - three days and then add scenery, soaking it with wet H2O. To get additional texture, add a small amount ( incomplete coverage) of dirt, then green blend and mist, both will take, etc. Add large stuff first, logs, stones by pressing into fiber. Add fine covers and mist. the covers on stones will run off, and be deeper around stones. Because you used no cement the top of stone when misted cleans up.
The scene was reshaped without needing to worry about damage to water scene. The portion on the right side next to stone wall needs finishing. Extend wall with L?
The water was poured over a foam base or wood base, with either plaster paris, spackling powder, durhams putty, or foam coating with rubberizer?. Wanted to experiment with each, all were tinted. Foam coating alone is too porous unless the rubberizer? is used. Turns out this can be applied fairly thin. The wood part was painted only, works fine. Multiple thin pours with clear silcone caulk in layer. On left side the tan bare areas is dry fiber that was used to cover resin creep along sides.
Its apple cider season... Everything goes with cider...
