Is it me...the "edit" facility disappears shortly after a post, I seem to remember it always being there?

The gel has finally set up.

Now, a bit of weathering powder and I can put the tug boat back in place.



A bit of a close up.



It's tricky stuff to photograph, but you get the idea.

That looks excellent Max...well done!

The "edit" I mentioned is there with my PC but not on my iPad?

Thanks, Phil.

Yes.  Our iPad is a bit lacking in some respects.

The same as Troels used in the video.

Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy.  It has to be the super heavy so that it doesn't slump, and you can pull it up with the palette knife to make crests.

I'm doing it differently from him, because I want the effect of a windy day after a storm; but the technique is the same.

I did a lot of pallete knife painting back in the 70's and 80's...when I had more time :roll:

I know how that is.  I've been up since 5, so I've made good use of the three hours to now.

OK    Back to the shallow end . . .

I did some test washes using my standard matt black  and my seawater green.



The unfinished bit in the middle served well as it's the actual plaster I'll be using.

So, to start washing the beach area . . .



The sand has built up along the row of old piles where the old jetty once stood, and around the rails of the slipway.



Now the gel is applied.  It's piled up against the shoreline and the old piles.  The leeward side of the swell is smooth, while the windward side is choppy.  The wavelets are applied with the heel of the palette knife; the thinner the layer of gel, the smaller the wavelets.

I've started to make the gel thicker to the right side, as I'm preparing for bigger chop as I move further into deeper water.

It will take a couple of days now to set up, so I'll turn my attention to the centre module.

The last lot of gel has been applied.


Two days to wait and then the white weathering powder goes on.

Just to appease your baffled smiley Max, B P OT Y stands for 'Best Plank Of The Year' and the award couldn't go to a better Oz !

The gel coat has dried at the slipway end, so on with the weathering powder.



I'm hoping the stingray lurking at the back of the swell will divert attention from other shortcomings.   :lol:
