Read the recent messages on Modeling Water and it's been a great help,
but before I start, and make a complete mess of things I would like to
get a couple more answers. . I know that a good base paint underneath
helps the enhancement of what the lake/river will look like. Does
anyone have suggestions as to the color a person should use. I would
like to create a reservoir effect, with a small creek disappearing
into the layout with sandy beaches along the way. The reservoir would
run right up to the edge of the mountains and have just a tiny beach
around the endges.
This weekend I saw a layout where they had probably used a light brown
color paint as a base and then glued lichen and sprinkled grass on
the paint before putting the water down. It gave a nice effect.
All suggestions greatly appreciated.
