I have decided to work on two step down facades so that the Mt. tiles will be more stable when stacked this high.

I have not used this bridge for a while. I need new base for it that looks good outside.

Wow, thanks a lot!!!
I should have waited a little longer to test.
The thin realistic water did not crack when bent. I left a fingerprint when I touched it ealy.
The Realistic Water is plastic, I saw a video in which a drop of Realistic water peeled off backing paper. You will have to be careful about brush strokes.

Hey Oldent, I have two questions for you, in case you ever tried these things.

What I am doing is making a kind of "terrain tray" using a metal sheet (in my case 50x40 cm).
I primed it with a zync-based acrylic primer, I will then airbrush it to my tastes (dark still water) and would like to finish with a glossy surface, if possible not just a glossy primer, but a couple of mm think.

The questions are:

1- can you apply realistic waters with a brush? What I would like to do is pouring some of it in the center of the sheet, then expand it using a brush until it is thin. The main reason would be to avoid using "armors" on its side.

2- have you any idea of the "flexibility" of the final result? The reason for this question is that of course the sheet (being 0,6mm think, even if metal) bends a little when moving it around, so if the final result is super rigid (like resin would be) it would crack with the smallest bend. Of course I do not mean bending the sheet 90°, I mean just the small fluctuation when moving it from one place to another.

Thank you for your attention anyway!
I was curious about your questions.
I took a 40mm metal base and painted Realistic Water on the surface with a brush. Gravity took care of the brush strokes. We will see how flexible it is when it is dry.

I have not used a brush with Realistic water. I believe it will be flexible enough. I have not tried it.

I magnetized some accessories while I was waiting for UPS today. More KSV arrived today.

This will be ready by tomorrow afternoon.

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.

<image snipped>
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.
I want to get some f the spacers for some of my boxes.
