    Hello Kenneth,
    I wondered what you have been up to. Your groundwork looks great. What did you use for all of the plants and how did you attach them?

    Thanks for the positve comments,Guy ! The forest litter is a combination of dried leaves from the Hudson and Allen range and deritus from the dried ferns,that I used to make some of the plants.The rest of the plants consist of static grass,dried ferns,"sea foam"dried plants and a sort of dried herb which I had in my collection.All were attached with PVA glue.BTW,any tips on how I should approach the stream that runs across the base and under the clock Thanks in advance,Guy.Cheers !

    Hey kenneth,
    For that shallow stream, I would just use 5 minute epoxy right over where you want water. As it hardenes, you can work it a little with a tooth pick to gice a slight ripple effect. This has worked for me in the past for shallow water.

    Thanks,Guy,for the quick reply I'll try it out once I get the rest of the base painted up.Cheers !
    Kenneth
    BTW,do you "flow" the epoxy in or just mix it directly onto the area concerned

    I agree with Guy re the 5 minute epoxy water. It worked for me too. i also added a little acrylic paint to it for the desired colour

    Kenneth,
    I mix up my epoxy on an old business card and use a popsicle stick and toothpick to apply it over to the base where I need it.

    Looks great Kenneth! Like Guy and others mentioned, use 5 minute epoxy with a SMALL amount of acrylic, a little goes a loong way, if you use too much it may flatten the sheen and depth you want from the epoxy.
