While on watery scenic features I had a look at my small pond/lakes etc...see here) . Its runny stuff and takes 24hrs or so to set, great though and its looks very good ...

After working on my wide river sections, I re-visited my stream sections. These comprise 'Battlefield in a Box' items and one home-made section, which have been painted & varnished. They have a 'light brownish' look - I wanted to give them a tinge of blue and perhaps a bit more reflectivity.
To add the tinge of blue I mixed some mid-blue paint with some gloss varnish, trial item on the left
that'll do 😀 🐍

Still wading through rivers...
I decided to sort out my large river sections before re-visiting colours and finish of the medium width river sections (and streams). The large river sections were made with acrylic sheet and sprayed on one side for effect; the top side is very reflective and I needed to reduce this somehow.
I thought about using some plastic effect sheets suitably painted stuck on top of the old sections. There are some nice ones
- Busch BUS7180 water effect with ripples (clear plastic)
- Faller 170791 Lake Sheet (clear plastic)
- Amera P109 Water effect sheet (white plastic). http://www.amera.co.uk
Alright for a small area or pond, but not suited to my needs. After a bit of thought I remembered my friend had used clear plastic shower curtain over blue fabric for a river ... very effective.

One thing missing from my river sections are some wiggles or bendy sections. ...
First up was to check on what I had already... enough to get me halfway across the gaming table...
