Thanks.

Pour number 4 has brought the river up to a nice depth. Once fully set it will be time for some water effects. Some dry white brushing was done after pour 2 and now shows up very softly beneath the surface.

Now adding some Mod Podge with a little dry white paint below to build up the water effect. Water pressure behind the fisherman and as it flows by him, a little extra on the line and some tiny drips on the water surface from the line. Gradual buildup, as less is more and you can add but not take away.

Getting ready to do some water scene's myself and I am curious about the fish.

Are your fish a commercial product?

An item you created yourself?

Something else?

Thanks,

Jerry

Jerry,

Just carved it from a small piece of wood, painted per a local fishing chart. Once under water it is only just visible, just like a real fish ;)

Jerry,
I used a little Mod Podge between my fingers and ran the cotton sewing thread through, did this a couple of times until I got the shape where I wanted it. Attached it to the rod and fish with your favorite glue

Upriver want to try some small rapids. Need to work on them before the log bridge structure is in place.
