looks kinda small, is it part of a larger board? but please dont use the GW water effects. you will hate how much it shrings and then have to go repaint your water edge.

get some Envirotex Lite or go to a floral shop and ask them about some water clear resin used for silk flower arrangements.

i would post a pic but got my fingers slaped the last time i posted a pic for ideas in anothers thread.

the difference witht eh water clear or enviro stuff and the GW product, is GW;'s stuff you dont mix, the others you do and they all take about 24 hrs to dry. but the others have less shrinkage.

you might find the envirotex where you find polyurethenes.

Yeah, Water whatever from GW isn't great. Its best just to buy some clear resin and maybe add some blue-green color to it to make it look murky. I think you can also get resin at Home Depot or Lowes but i'm not sure if its clear.

It is about 16" x 16" The rest of the swamp scenery plant decor I am going to purchase from
Pet Smart in their fish tank section.
They have a great selection for just what I need.

try to give those aquarium plants a wash of watered doen green paint to dull them up a bit, they are too shiney to look right.

lowes and HD dont usually sell clear resins, but walmart, michaels, and AC Moore does

This is an earlier photo of my construction. It is mean to be for a regiment skirmish to connect with other related terrain. I have cmpletly revamped a lot of it, but it is still in its prototype state.
If more people are interested in seeing it completed I will post the finished version of it. Or if you would like to see what I have updated so far I can do that to.

There are open paths so a GM can apply it to another path on a Game board. Because my next stageof construction if upainted it looks kind of silly.
