It was my first time with Realistic Water and I think I put it on a little too thick, as there were a few bubbles I couldn't get rid of, but here it is:

Based on my gelatinous cube making experience, I would suggest ink or pigments for tainting realistic water, not water-containing paint. I might be wrong though...

As I understand, you CAN mix paint into Realistic Water, but you need to go VERY easy on it. A drop or 2 goes a REALLY long way.....again, this is all based on what I have heard / read.

You posting that it works is enough to make me want to try it, though. :)

Any chance of a pic when you are finished?

I poured some Realistic Water into my pool last night; looked at it this morning and it seems to be coming along nicely.

I've never used Realistic Water before; could I use it with a little red or green paint to maybe put some blood or ooze puddles on my tiles, or would it not work/look terrible?

That is an elegantly simple solution with great versatility. Makes me wish I'd pledged for an unpainted CoS.

And my compliments on using the small stairs to dress up the square pillars made by stacking pedestals. Very nice.

I just painted the bottom of the pool grey. Drilled a hole in the middle big enough to stick my finger through. Then I cut out several patterns that I printed on card stock, just under 3 inches (76mm) in diameter. And, voila, you have a pool, pit, gate, etc. No painting required.

To be honest, I use Liquitex Acrylic Gloss Sealer on top of blue basecoat and some lighter blue shading and it gives a great water look without worrying about the resin. If you want to have it look like it's "splashing" you can take clear plastic like CD sleeves or snippets of a Coke bottle, generally in triangles, and then put some of the Vallejo water effects on it. Looks superb when dried.

The realistic water does work and looks great. Woodland scenics makes it. It comes in clear and you paint on the base color first. They also have it premixed in a blue. I've seen it at Michaels arts and crafts as well as Ace Educational Supply.

It dries in 24 hours. It remains a little flexible. Their website has videos showing the process.

there are now three threads asking the same question - i am sure Stefan will answer when he gets time, but lets focus all those threads in one place:

Has Stefan ever said what types of paints he used for the COS? I want some more floor and wall pieces in the KS color scheme. I know it's red with a heavy black drybrush on top with a light hint of gold drybrush on top of that, but I want my tiles to match the ones from my painted set.

Anyone have any success with that yet?
