This is a tutorial on "how to made a stream".
French Indian wars - Armed Colonial Setters patrolling the area near a stream.
I used 3mm MDF cut into 12 inch length x 7cm wide.
I cut enough strips to cover a 6' x 4' table diagonally .
Use box cutters to trim the edges of both sides length wise.
Apply PVA glue and place larger stones first followed by the wood pieces and last of all the finer stones.
Once the PVA is set apply another layer of PVA in between the length of stones, this will be where the water will be.
This is done to achieve a waving look on the water.
Prime with black primer spray can.
Use Vallejo model colour Black Green and paint the area that will be water.
Dry brush the stones with VMC Desert Yelllow.
Touch up the water with VMC Black Green.
Highlight the stones by adding VMC Iraqui sand to the base coat and do a very very light dry brush on a few areas on the water. .
Paint the wood pieces and paint the outer areas with any earth type colour.
Apply 2 generous coats of Tamiya X-22 on-top of green paint which represents the water.
Once dry apply PVA glue to the outer areas of the stream and adapt flock.
close up shoots of the stream.
Pile of stream terrain ready for the gaming table.
