In this hot summer it’s nice to work in the water …

Unlike the other times, where I used clear resin, this time I am trying to make the water base with paints and various acrylic clear paints.

There are still several steps left such as lightening the water near the plane, few sprays of white here and there …

If you have any further advice it is as always welcome
