    The final touch is complete. I added a drop of Urethane to each eye for a glossy look.

    Thanks for all the compliments.

          My loon was looking homesick sitting on a wooden shelf, so I decided I needed to mount in on some water. I did some searching for recreating water and didn't find too much. I'm sure there must be more, but I guess I'm not using the right words - "water" does not turn up as much as I was expecting.

          Anyway, I plan to simulate an early morning flat lakeshore and have the loon swimming along the shoreline. In this photo, I have carpet in the rear, but I will create some sort of rocky/mossy shoreline with some other vegetation.

          For this, I have a piece of 12" x 8" gray smoke acrylic sheet. I was thinking of pouring some clear epoxy over it and just before it sets using a hair dryer or air hose to add some small ripples. I really like the reflection. I think it adds a lot, and it should look even better with the planned shoreline in the background reflecting as well and if I can get the ripples idea to work.

          Does anyone have any pointers to help with creating the water or shoreline, or any references that can help?

          Thanks,
          Tom

            Beautiful scene and for scenes like that I search the model train folks. They are great at water, snow, ice, etc.

              Thanks. That's a great suggestion.
