Working with water
Water is tricky, more powerful than you would imagine and pretty much has a mind of it's own. I still don't know that I'm good with it, but I learned a lot creating this creek for a high school production of "The Women of Lockerbie."
Each platform was built up with layers of foam attached together with contact adhesive and then carved down. The creek was carved into the foam and then coated with Jaxan rubberized coating to make it water tight.
I added a chunk of 2x4 to the front of each platform and built up the sides with more jaxan to create the waterfalls in between the levels.
