    Thanks Jason,Barrie and Marc for your kind comments, just hope that I can pull it off.Never done a big area of water before, so will be doing a couple of test runs before committing to the main base.If anyone has any advice on layers of resin feel free to comment.

    Looking great David. Water is not to hard to achieve. Making it splash upwards was tricky tho.

    David,
    Water is not so difficult to do.
    Here are my efforts.
    First of all paint the base (whats under water with acrylic paint, this is important because oilpaint gets off).
    The hold the resin from floating off the base take some clear acetate. Glue it to the base.
    Make the resin and put it in the area you want it. Not more then 2 - 3 mm thick. If you do more it become to heat and it will crack like ice when cooling off. Most at the time 2-3 mm is thick enough for figure bases.
    When it is hardend you can do a new layer if nessecery.
    If you want rimples in it, take a toothpick and keep stirring into the resin till it is gonna be hardening. The resin tells you when to stop.

    Good luck.
