That's really good!  :beers:
I might try to trade in my "Realistic Water" for the Deep Pour!
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

One thing I haven't seen discussed is surface hardness of the Deep Water Pour.  When I used WS Realistic Water on my first layout, the ships I placed on the surface weeks after the pour was "dry" eventually sank into the water a bit and bonded.   I had a heck of a time removing them when I cannibalized for the next layout.  Any problems like this with the Deep Water Pour?

I've tried a few things for my water, everything from Gloss Matte Medium to the WS Real Water stuff (terrible I might add).  I don't know about WS Deep Pour but after watching a few How to Water videos by a guy named Luke Towan I am sold on a product called Envirotex.

It is a two part epoxy resin that dries quickly, crystal clear and very hard and tints very well.  I should add that it is also a heck of a lot cheaper than the WS stuff and what I will be using from now on.

As for sealing everything I create my lakes, rivers etc from light weight plaster then give it a light coat of acrylic paint to "stain" the bottom.  I also try to have a "V Shape" for my water ways and pour my "water" in thin layers tinting each layer with a different color.  The further up the sides of the lake etc the "water" goes the lighter it gets around the edges and the darker it gets in the middle.  Even using the same color tint will cause the "lower layers" to become darker than those above them.

Greetings, amigo!  I'm using the Envirotek also.  What do you use to tint it?

Hey mate, how's things?

I was just using Tamiya Acrylic paint for tinting but any acrylic paint should work I would think.
Cheers,

Tony

The WS Deep Pour that I used has set rock hard like glass. You can put anything on and it won't even mark it let alone sink in.

Thanks!  The Realistic Water "seemed" to cure rock hard,  but over time - months and years - is when the problem occurred.  But that isn't a two part epoxy.
