Just so there is no confusion, I was referring to the Woodland Scenics Product: Realistic Water, not a way of paiting something that looks realistic:

I'm new to this painting thing; what's the best way to do realistic water? Paint the bottom a light blue and then filling it in with something? What would I use?

Painting everything was fast and easy (3 sets + stretch goals and 6 addons.

I first dungeon greyed the whole lot ~2hrs.
Then I separated the walls into 3 groups and painted each group with a different stone pattern ~4hrs
I dry brushed olive (~2.5 hrs) and edge color (~2hrs).
Note: With Edge color I drybrushed the edges of the pieces first then the face sides. Use very little paint so you don't cover up the other 3 colors.

All my pieces were done like an assembly and by the end of it I felt a bit sorry for those Chinese workers!

-for doors I just dry brushed brown and painted silver where the metal should be. If/ When I haphazardly painted on to the door frame I just dry brushed olive and then edge color to cover it up. Doors took ~1hour

I wonder if anyone else is considering using "Realistic Water" on the inside of that pool. I know I'm thinking about it, but I have never used it before.

Looking very nice!

I wanted the same thing and this how it came out.

I started by painting the piece to DF specs Grey-olive- edge drybrush etc... Then I painted the pool dark blue, then dry brushed a light blue over it. I applied some tape to the inside edge of the pool to create a "splash barrier" because I finished the pool with a coat of air-sol gloss finish to give it a shine.

Good luck!

Has anyone painted their pool in the CoS? I bought a set unpainted because I wanted a pool full of water. Any suggestions on how to do it so it looks at least as good as my prepainted red one? :)
