Hi guys, 

So I finally have the guts to start adding the resin water. First time for everything and lets hope its going to be OK. Maybe it will be or I might ruin it completely [rolleyes]

I am using AK resin water set. It consists of two bottles (resin and hardening agent) and two seringes. The resin is mixed with the hardening agent in 2:1 ratio. Thats the easy part. But I wanted to add some colour to the water. So added a mix of azure blue and greenish tones. But my first attempts messed up. For some reason the paint didn't mix well with the mixture as you can so on pic 2.
So dumped this batch and started again. I diluted the paint with water and that worked better. So I added the resin to the base. But unfortunately the result isn't what I wanted. I should have added more paint because when the paint flows out, the colour isn't visible that much. Well, can't start over now and just have to see how its looks when dry.

After this first layer I will add another layer of resin. And then it will be time to add waves and stuff.

Here are the pictures.

The resin poured on the base. Colour isn't what I hoped for. Just have to wait how it ends up when fully dry.

Hi all, so the resin part of creating the sea is done. Only thing left is sanding the borders to create a smooth edge.
After that step its on to creating moving water. Hope to be able to apply the first layer this weekend.

Thanx guys! Happy with the result so far. Especially for a first time using this product.

Today I did some sanding and polishing of the resin water. I guess it doest have to be super smooth since I am going to add layers of water effects. But i looks better and gives a nice surface for the following steps.

By the way. Do you even go to the beach and when swimming in the water you see the shadows of the waves on the bottom. Somehow I created the same effect with the wash of darker sand colour... I just noticed it on the last picture. Kinda like it if I might say so 😉

OK, so the first set of waves have been applied. It now looks like white foam already but this stuff will dry completely transparant. After this step I will add the white foam. There is a separate product for that 😉

Awesome work.  Reminds me of summer at the beach.  Not that there were ever any Italian float-planes when I went there!

So, added the sea foam. It does look a bit like the last step but that water gel dried up completely transparent as it should. This stuff has a bit of a matt white finish. Maybe add a little more transparent water gel after it since it might dry a bit matt. We will see...

It will be my final Build photo. Think I will finish the kit and did now and show you the final reveal. Hopefully this week it will be finished 😉

I really like how the whole scene looks. The water seems very nice. Realistic IMHO.
