I usually use black as a undercoat for water. I will try your silver base coat idea, Very nice work.

I like the look of both of those very much, especially the deep green one. A return to caverns KS whith more water features and alternate paints like these would be awesome!

Both of those look great and that's the bright blue I'm looking for.

I don't have pics, but I did use a fluorescent blue and fluorescent green mix in both my Chamber of Sorrows pool and some of my KS2 cavern spot pools, painted over a white base. Still opaque, but probably the bright you are looking for.

Here are two that I have done. The water in each case is an undercoat of silver covered by a thickish coat of Tamiya clear colors.

I am getting ready to paint a couple of sets to use with my custom painted Erinthor mountains but I'm not sure what colors will look good with the water (I know I do want it brighter blue), does anyone have examples of custom painted rivers?
