Sea Diorama question
« on: Sun Jan, 01, 2017, 02:18:PM »
Ive made a sea base for my RNLI Severn Class Lifeboat & I have used the following youtube video to make my sea base.


Using his toilet paper method has worked a treat, I have painted on the sea color & dry brushed on some white to bring the waves out.

But he used a wooden base to put the toilet paper on, where as I used 1 inch think foam mounted on thin wood for my base.

Its the glossing part that I have a question about.

He paints on a clear gloss layer, then a layer of what looks like PVA, the a couple of more layers of clear gloss. I will be using Revell Aquaclolor gloss, if I did gloss it.

Does it have to be glossed to make it more realistic?

Because i'm really happy with the result I have got.

Cheers,

Wayne.

He adds the gloss after the glue to give it the "wet" watery look. The glue will give that as well, just depends on the finish you want.

Ok,

After putting the first coat of Revell Aquacolor gloss, it has brought it out a little better.

So ive let it dry & I have now put the PVA coat on.

Im now going to give the PVA until Friday night to dry before I put another coat of gloss on.

*Fingers Crossed*
