24 hours earlier than planned. No eye protection , no gloves. no industrial respirator no industrial ventilation.

It is not as hard as resin. I do not think it is as easy to crack as Still Water.It doesn't turn yellow. Do not store anything on top of it.

I keep the one foot tiles in craft paper boxes.
I've had my eye on trying the realistic water for some time. Glad to hear you recommend it.

And I love those craft boxes. I even got some of the internal organizer trays made for it to allow double-stacking inside with lots of little cubbies.

This is coming along nicely! I love seeing the progress updates and can't wait for the final piece. :)
Thanks
I reconsidered the Smooth on resin. They recommend a respirator. I am not comfortable with the ventilation in the work room.

This is the styrofoam and packing tape damn clamped to the bench dogs on the work table.

Measuring by weight is not difficult. But Smooth on cautioned against an analogue scale. Requiring a digital scale moves the project into expert level. Suggesting an industrial grade respirator moves it to the too dangerous for the living space category.

I am going to use Realistic Water from Woodland Scenics instead. Back to safe and easy.

I need to clean and vacuum this room so that I can pour the resin Friday afternoon. That way it can sit over the weekend in the vented room.

I will receive more of my KSV pledge Friday. I will have to work on it on the kitchen table until the work room is free. The Pain the Pain :D

I made a cave wall facade so that the Mt elevation tiles can stretch further.

I realised I needed some new facades when I was unpacking the Mt. Set

Nice mud pools, William... reminds me of Yellowstone.

Might take some of my open water 2x2s and do a mud theme.

Have you considered a thin acrylic sheet? maybe 1/8" or so. I've had some 3/8" laser cut for a side project, will check with my store and see how thin acrylic has to be before you can cut it "at home".

Downside to acrylic is it can scratch easily.
Lexan would scratch less than acrylic plexi-glass.
Lots of good options.
