No title yet, but it's a boat

Hi Gordon

Sorry, I don't want to hijack your thread. So I will try to reply briefly. English is rather basic so I couldn''t express properly what I wanted do say.
What I meant is, to represent such a river bank as this here, with stones, sticking half out of the water, I will most probably have to use another technique, more transparency.

Resin, poured in several layers, seems to be the way to go, but resin has a number of disadvantages compared to your approach:

... How to simulate the flow of the water?
... How to prevent the resin creaping up the side of the stones?

Cheers, Peter
