|New water surface at Accokeek Creek. The water fall over the spillway needs to be added next.|
I reworked the water in Accokeek Creek this weekend.
|Adding some texture before the pour|
I used my photoflood to warm the resin as it cured. With the light shining it cured in about 2 hours to the point where I could add some ripples in the resin. I poked the resin with a wooden coffee stirrer to make the ripples.
For the back part of the creek, I repainted the banks and much of the existing resin surface to disguise the rusty red color. Then I poured a fresh layer of Magic Water with some brown and green drops of Testors enamel.

In a few days I will add some fresh texture to the banks with lots of tall weeds and grass.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Magic Water. I am now convinced that I will use this for the main water surfaces at Aquia Landing.
