I think it actually looks good, the way water looks foamy near the waterfall...but you now need to make another "transition piece" that has the foamy whitish water gradually disipating and turning green...

I have only used Casting craft resin, Enivrotex, and one of the Train scenery makers (woodland scenics or something like that) but for different effects never tried mixing them.

Oh and not knocking that you posted it over at HA, just mentionind i saw it there too.

I have a bit of HA myself. I have wanted to do something like this myself, but with lava ;) , but i can't justify spending the some odd $90 to get the molds i am interested in. But i think i found a way to get some bits to work with....

crioux,

I just wanted to add that unless you got a SERIOUSLY DAMAGED result that doesn't show up in the last pic you posted, I really DON'T see what you're upset about in your waterfall! I mean, YOU know what you were aiming for, but it looks GREAT to ME! Honestly, guy, unless you truly were looking for a glass-clear water flow between the arch-over and the turbulence effect at the base of the falls (sort of mid-drop), it looks correct to me!
Based on the appearance of the flow over the dams here in Baltimore County, we get white water over all three water-supply reservoir dams at flood level, and when I say white-water, that's EXACTLY what I mean! Yes, I have seen clear-water mid-arch, but it takes SERIOUS overflow for that to happen!
IF that's what you're looking for, try the Woodland Scenics Water Effects product; it can be a royal pain to work with until you're used to it, but I've heard NOTHING but good reports on it - and it's ALL low-temperature melt or non-chemical stuff; no monster fumes to deal with, as with some resin products I can think of.

Good luck, guy.

I managed to salvage it. I even added a chest in the water to hide broken part.

I posted the pictures on HA forums

crioux,

EXCELLENT salvage work! Stunning - I mean that!
Man, you took what even I was ready to say "Dump it and start over!" and resurrected a masterpiece - or what will serve as one until a real masterpiece comes along, if it isn't one!
Way to GO! That is great, guy!

Good job.

Crioux

Thanks for posting all the information - especially the failures as well. I know a lot of people give great advice and ask - couldn't you try this or that as well - but there are always two issues - cost of material and will it actually work. By sharing what does work - and what doesn't you help others to prevent the same mistakes.

Transparency seems quite an issue. I have some Valejo water and wasn't happy with it, as it seemed very milky for quite a while. Polyester Resin is quite cheap and crystal clear - but suffers the problem to be smelly and sticky - and it is only worthwhile when you want 'a lot' - we are talking some 1 kg minimum.

So keep on sharing. I'm contemplating some ideas on your roof system to make it more modular / easier to store. The issue is to have 'flat' roofs and to connect them savely. I will post in case it works (or doesn't). The idea is to imbed some Lego blocks to the roofs. This should allow to connect them either sideways to make roofs wider - or to connect both sites.

To me, the white in-process picture looks like a nice frozen waterfall... definitely some uses for that, but the end result is awesome.
