    Hi, I am working on a suspended water scene with driftwood branch sticking up the middle. I'm trying to find the best way to make some waves on the plexiglass. So far I have the plexiglass on the branch and made it look like the water is freezing around the branch. Next step is to add small waves or ripples. I have a tube of level and I have silmar scenery resin I was planning to use with some blue and green dye. If anyone has some tips or suggestions that would be great! Thanks!

    Use enviro tech lite , lay some sand down as a mold , wet it make depressions and odd shapes in it . Lay a pcs of clear wrap on top , mix EVT and wait , you want the EVT to start to kick , could be 20 mins , as it kicks wip it to put air in it , when it holds the air and stays frothy without breaking down pour on clear wrap. After it hardens you have a wave , now glue on to plexiglass and add more EVT to blend in.

    I haven’t found a good picture of what I want but some small waves is what I’m going for just something to add realism to it
