still not moved house and even now a bit time to do some stuff. Due to the fact that I have quite some cardboard now staying around I took the opportunity to get some for some rivers.
What is needed:
- Special glue that keeps a shiny surface
- PVA Glue
- Sticki paper
My river is approx 8 cm wide including the sides
Take two pencils and a ruler. Use some cheap tape and wrap your pencils around ruler in your desired wide (remember mine is 8 cm). Looks funny, but is a great thing to speed things up
Take your cardboard and simply outline your river
Cut your river pieces
Use some sticki paper to seal all open sides.
After Step 4 it should look like this ....
Now do the banks of the river with filler and place stones, sand etc.. in it
Basecoat all... I did it black
Paint your stuff when it is dried.. I used different brown, red and yellow for the river banks as well different blue , green and brown colours for the actual water.
When everything is dry and highlighted use your shiny glue on the water surface.... this will later on still reflect the light as would real water do as well.
Flock the river banks....
