Pembroke’s River is Finished (for now)

I’ve declared the river to be finished from now.  Does it look like a river?  Well, from sufficiently low angles, it reflects mostly sky, and almost succeeds.  However, the sky is not as bright as a real sky, and so, the river is not as bright as a real river.  The kids both say it needs to be blue.

Okay, let’s add it all up.  The river consists of the following in reverse order:

  • Two layers of Krylon Crystal Clear
  • Two layers of Liquitex Transparent Black
  • One layer of Liquitex Raw Sienna
  • A few final spots of filler, sanded 150 grit
  • Black latex paint, sanded 150 grit
  • Areas of filler, sanded 150 grit
  • Black latex paint
  • Areas of filler, sanded 120 grit
  • Primer
  • Large areas of filler, sanded 120 grit
  • Primer
  • A full layer of filler, sanded 80 grit
  • Plywood

That’s thirteen coats between you and the plywood.  I’m pleased to say it doesn’t look like plywood, but it doesn’t look much like a river either.
