Waterfall started. (WIP)

It is clear that doing the waterfall for the TAR7AN board will take a while. I did not want the water to be clear and factory finished so I decided to "Texture" the water. To create the rippled water like effect I decided to drip yatch varnish on to the Perspex. I have to do one drop each day and allow the rest of the time for it to dry. It is now beginning to take up a more natural finish. At this stage I feel It is about half way there. Which will mean a few more weeks of dripping. 

That's it for today, very quick as I will be going to play a game with "Posties Rejects". Therefore the next post on this blog will most likely be a battle report. I have a few clues as to what we might be playing, but until I arrive I cannot be sure. The only thing I will predict is that Postie will put me in the thick of the action as he thinks I did not get too much of a game last time.

Ok folks hope to see you Tuesday. Have a god couple of days. All the Best Clint

    1. It should look very like this but with more texture. Thank you Mathyoo.

  3. The waterfall is looking very good, the colouring and varnish effects are excellent. I do think though that it needs a bit of bulking out (which may well come with the extra varnishing)
    I had been wondering what had happened to this .

    1. I really don't see it getting much bulkier to be honest. it's the first waterfall I have ever attempted so don't expect it to be so very good.

      I took a break from it because I did originally want it finished by 22nd September and when I realised I was not going to make it put it on the back burner.

      Thank you Jo.

    1. I did not punch Ray on the nose or anywhere else for that matter. It would be ungracious to say more than Ray did not through very good dice.

    2. The dice gods did not smile upon Ray? Oh boy, I can't wait for the write-up.

    3. Let's just say Ray did not have the best day.

  5. That is really taking shape, patience is definitely a virtue in this instance. Hope the game went well.

    1. The game did go well and I had a good time.

      The waterfall will take me a while to get how I want it, That said it does not need to be perfect, just needs to be good enough for everyone to know what it is.

      Thank you Michael

  6. One drop at a time-now that's dedication to one's craft. It's coming along nicely and looking forward to the batrep for the game today!

    1. Although I do try for one or two drops I have been heavy handed on occasion!

      Bat rep tomorrow. I would check out Rays report when he posts it as I suspect that will be more accurate and informative.

      Thank you Anne
