Water Effects


Recommended Posts

So I've been using GW water effects on some bases, and it seems to be awful. It dries to a layer about 1/3 as thick as you put on and what's more it tends to pool in larger areas while the smaller areas dry up. Is this true of most water effects? I realise it's a time consuming process but each layer is visible through the last and as such completely fails to look like natural water.

One-part water effects usually sucks. It is because they shrink quite substantially as they set. This can give a lot of unwanted effects. Usually, at least if you want some depth (more than a few millimeters), a two-part resin is the way to go. They have little or no shrinkage.

I have done water effects on bases with both Vallejo Water Effects and Woodland Scenics Water Effect and both work well, I have done how-tos for both to boot:
