I do not know if frequent updates are of interest to all, but I publish this further stage of work for those who were interested in the development of the various phases of the diorama. Hello everyone.

it´s very good...You will have to tell how you did the green pond / water weed effect on the water.

ok Paul. Let me explain how I'm doing the river. First the effect of liquid water should be spread in layers (no more than 3 mm at a time). They expect a couple of days and, when the layer is dry stretches a new layer, until desired thickness. The effect of weed in the water I tried to get a coloring of the water effect with layers of acrylic color green algae. The formation of the river is a bit complicated and long, I started over a month ago and still have not finished. So too the waterfall, you have to wait until the gel is curdled and then put out a new layer of gel, and so on. Hope that helps. Best regards.

Very nice tutorial indeed and sounds like a long project, both with a splendid result.


Best regards

I am using two gel products, sold by Abbiati wargames, a clear + a mat. I can tell you that up to now are not very satisfied because we are working with some difficulty and still can not say what the final effect. We'll see how it is. Alternatively you can look at the posts on my blog (Palestinian crib) where I created the drinking water for animals with the simple transparent silicone and white acrylic, with very good results. See you soon

I agree and I really do like the water as it has got this "flow" look

not entirely satisfied ... but the result is quite acceptable and plausible. In particular, I promote the liquid water effect of Toffano as great product, but I think the two poor gel used to achieve the effect foam and ripples are unsatisfactory.
