Looks good.

I would have used plastic tube, can always make a rough texture by sanding it; but then I always go for the easy way out.

The next step is the green paint.



I'm hoping that I've left enough of the seal above the green for the gel to come to the right level.

No second chances from here.

Nice to see that you've done a good job of 'sealing' the surface!

Is that "Kiss from a Rose" I can hear wafting up from the pier there, Max?

The seal is no more.  I would have had to cut it in half to get it below the waves.

While I'm waiting for the gel to dry, I've moved to the other end.



I've marked the transition from sandy bottom to deeper water and kept this image as a reminder.



I've started laying the plaster.

Three or four long ripples from the wall to baseboard edge would look good, these would be in the shallow end where the water is smoother and spaced maybe around six feet apart, it would give a nice transition between the rougher water to where the water meets the pebbles, it would also give a sense of tide movement up onto the beach.

Thanks, Phil.  There is the remnant of a swell adjacent to the middle of the derelict pile, but it's hard to see with everything being white.  I adjusted the lighting as best I could, but it will have to wait until I progress.

I'm interested in the ripples, but I can't imagine them.  Do you have a photo handy, please?

The forum keeps on crashing, Phil.

I have to post a bit at a time.

I'm using Troels' method.  Is this what you mean about the ripples?

I can't do the ripples until I have the plaster in place and it's painted.

Yes Max that's exactly the method, I can't find the picture I'm looking for but something like these two, the ripples don't need to be choppy, the ripple itself is raised maybe a 3 to 4 inches, the water behind can be smooth but getting a little rougher the deeper it gets.

I think another trick is:- when you paint, start diluting the paint a couple of inches before you get to the pebbles,it should give a sand effect through the water,  then more dilucion again over the pebbles, an inch or so, it will make the water translucent there as the water will then wash over them.

BTW. I did notice your swells, two I believe ;-)
