The Best Water Material???

    I'm going to need to make some water in a diorama I'm working on...it will have to be deep ocean water, with a wavy surface, and will have an ocean going canoe in it.
    My question is: what are people using these days to represent water/ I have my old methods, which were tedious, but adequate for the times, and they worked quite well then.
    But now is now, and I'm sure there is something on the mini market that is better than what I developed 20 years ago ( when I did several watery vignettes and dioramas)...
    Any suggestions?

    I use Vallejo still water gradually built up in layers. For waves water effects gel.
    These can be tinted with normal acrylics.

    I think I am going to point you towards the master of this type of thing, Jean-Bernard André.

    JB has a great site his dioramas are just amazing. I love the fact that they are not all military dioramas. He has some You Tube videos as well.

    Guido...thanks, that's a great website....all Planeteers should check this out!
    I may actually go with the simpler method that is described on this site, because I'm not dealing with a waterline model in 1/700 or anything, so I need a deeper water effect.
    Very cool...
