Water structuring is the biggest challenge in model landscaping. With NOCH products you have always a professional, yet the simplest possible solution at hand.
Colour lakes, rivers and creeks with NOCH Riverbed Colour Set (ref. 60875) before starting to structure the water. Your colouring should become darker from the outside to the inside, as water appears darker with increasing depth. Fix small stones and sand on the shore surface to enhance this effect.
Application: Paint the lake or creek bed with the NOCH Riverbed Colour Set (ref. 60875) or acrylic colours and let it dry well. The darker the colour, the deeper the water appears. After the colour has dried, the artificial water can be filled up to 2 – 3 mm high into the lake bed in one single cast. Hardening time is approx. 24 hours. While hardening, the artificial water loses approx. 50 % of its volume, so that a water level of 1 – 1,5 mm is achieved. Important: Several layers are not recommended as otherwise the lowest water layer can become cloudy!
»Waves & Billows« is a great new water product, with which you can finally form higher waves. The material is used with a spatula from the can and applied roughly on the dried water surface. After drying for about half an hour, it is hardy enough to design a higher surge. Model wonderful waves and water forms with a toothpick or a small spatula.
The white spume often sets the crowning final of waves and rapids. NOCH »Foam & Spume« has been especially developed to recreate this great effect in model form. Apply »Foam & Spume« directly on the desired water spot with the user-friendly bottle and model it with a fine brush. A perfect finish for every water project!
After finishing the water structuring, the shore and lake can be decorated with NOCH accessories. Suitable are e.g. Fishing (Scale H0: ref. 15892) or House Boat (Scale H0: ref. 14224, scale TT: ref. 14437, scale N: ref. 14637).
