Very cool, can't wait to see how it turns out!

When I grow up, I want to be Oldent (crafting cool stuff all the time that is). :)
Thanks

I made a glaze from Blue DF paint and floor wax. I dry brushed it again with white. I may add a pearl finish when the paint drys.

It was cool and rainy so over night was not long enough to completely dry.

I dry brushed it white. I will put a glaze on it tonight.

Thanks :D

I had an idea for using Water Effect from Woodland Scenic with a D&D elemental.

Image

I drew a circle using the inside of the cookie cut as a template. I taped down a piece of clear packing plastic.


Image

I made a whirl pool with the water effect.

Image

It needs to dry over night. I may add more Water Effect or paint it and add more effects when I see what it looks like tomorrow. I can always add Realistic Water too. Gallery Glass is an option too.

Colored hot glue might be interesting too.

Long ago there was a whole thread on filling this hole...

viewtopic.php?f=34&t=6238

on page 3 Josh Chunick does a tutorial on how to make removable realistic water inserts - i still have not tried this, but it is on my list

Worth resurrecting now as a LOT more folks have pools now that they are easier to get than just unpainted CoS
I saw that way back.
Years before that I made some wells.

Image

I used Stillwater but prefer Realistic Water.

Image

I used PVC pipe for the form. I wanted to make sure the measurements were the same before I made the suggestion.

Image

It is probably easier for some of you to cast the inserts with Realistic Water in a cookie cutter than to cut PVC pipe. Use clay or hot glue to make the seal around the cookie cutter. Wax paper or baking paper makes a good non stick surface.
