“Making Waves” and Moving Water

Posted: October 22nd, 2012 under News.

 

At the beginning of this year I was commissioned by Deluxe Materials to create some models for them using their new “Making Waves” product.   This is a thick, one-part resin which holds its shape and dries clear - just perfect for water coming out of a tap etc.  It also colours easily using either the Deluxe Materials “Scenic Colours” or simple acrylic paint.   Using it in conjunction with “Solid Water” which mimics still and deep water perfectly, I created the following:

- Garden water pump

- Muddy puddle with raindrops

- Rock garden with water gushing over steps into a pond

- Overflowing kitchen sink with tap still pouring water

- Lion’s head fountain

Following on from these models, I wrote a project for “The Dollshouse Magazine” demonstrating the basic technique used to create these different water effects.  This was published in the July 2012 edition of the magazine - back copies available from the following link:

However, if you would like to know any more about these models and how they were produced, I would be happy to talk to me.  Simply email me:
