    Default Leaving a Sinking Ship

    Not posted anything for a while, so I thought you might want to see this little fun progject I have done.
    After the first dismal attempt, I had another go, and came up with this.
    (I messed up the water, horribly)



    Any questions, just ask, and I shall do my best to answer.

    Thought I would stick it on CMON too

    Why do you say you messed the water up? I think it looks cool and cute!

    Thanks guys. Nice to see it appreciated. I was going to add a bit of wood, but this piece is so tiny, I thought it would look cluttered.

    Also the nail was hit on the head, about the bubbles coming from the sinking ship.

    This piece is the second version I made, after the first one went a bit wrong, the water went too dark.

    See here.

    You know I've been meaning to ask someone this for a while, how did you get the choppy affect on the water?

    The water has to be the easiest product I have used to date.

    I was given it free by the company to try. Its from ziterdes.

    After the first mess, I wanted a material I could put around the base to stop it sticking. Zoe came up with the idea of acetate. I tested it and it worked, so taped it in place, job done.

    The water comes in little beads, just put in an amount, guess this, then add the colour, in this case blue with a touch of green. There is also some sort of sticky resin substance in a bottle you are meant to add, only add a small amount or your finished water will stay sticky( I did this in the very first test!) You are meant to cook it for 40 mins, but I did it for 30, took it out then mixed it, then put it back for the duration.

    When it comes out it is very fluid, and I just poured it around the barrel, letting it go higher at the back. as it was pouring I put a cocktail stick in, to aerate it a little, for the bubbles. I then quickly moved the top about slightly, to start the wave creation. then it was dry, it dries solid in around 3-4 mins.

    Once it was hardened I removed the acetate and then went about creating more defined waves and splashes up the barrel with Woodland scenics water effects. As so little was being used this dried in about 30mins. It was just a simple case of adding some faint touches of white then to give a little detail to the top of the water.

    Cool job matey, another idea would have been to have added drowning sailor to the water that the rat is looking down on, sniggering away to himself......
    I'm off to vote.
