This is a problem that often afflicts the modeller.
How to create the water in our dioramas?
On this occasion I will explain how to realize a dirty water effect and not so no transparent one.
Dark to the deep parts and more clear to the parties more near to surface…
It is not a mirror clear and clean …. At this point, with color dry apply several coats of clear varnish crystallizing.
This will give our water effect a wonderful realistic effect.
Personally I use a paint that I use and I know since I was a child: the Verni Das … And I never drive problems in this regard.
