Working on the Crooked Mile Creek that will flow into my Crooked mile river. Several days of adding gloss Mod Podge for the creeks flow.

That all looks nice,

Does your Modge Podge material actually harden for you? Some i used in similar fashion remains slightly sticky and a bit soft. A small vehicle I set on it sank into it enough I had to tug on it to get it off after Id left it there for a week or so, much longer than Id intended..

ion. Some of the thicker parts to show the water movement can take a couple of days. This is why I only use it for water movement. For deeper water I use Miracle Water (epoxy product I like but it's pricey)

While I wait for my Magic Water to be delivered have to work on anything below or beside the river water level. Too late once it's poured ;)

Watch out for air bubbles around objects that you are covering. Several thin pours are bettervthsn one thick one. You can also add dye to the lower pours to give the illusion of thicker water.

I remember using some crushed glitter from a craft store in the rapids. Took on a nice sparkle.

Wow now that's an interesting thought because I do have a small upstream rapid. Do you have a photo David?

It was thirty years ago on a club layout in Auburn NY. I moved away.

That river scene is sure reminiscent of the river bed just West of the Snowqualmie lodge. Outstanding set.

First Magic Water pour, Half quantity. Just wets the riverbed. Might have to buy more, see how it looks after the second pour.
