Model Waterways

I've written a lot about building waterways. I even produced a DVD on the subject. During that time I've had a chance to try almost all the water products. 

The waterways shown in every photo was made using an acrylic product called Mod Podge. In all examples the base was either hardboard, foam core or Gator Board. 

I paint the base using cerulean blue, medium green, black and white. When dry a dozen thin coats of Mod Podge is plopped on. It's not brushed on - brushing produces bubbles - just use a soft brush and lay it on.

As you can see one set of techniques can produce various results.
