Time for color! After a couple coats of painters caulking are spread on the Harbor and Creek,  shaping and molding with my fingers and brushes, I let it all set up 24 hours. Base green color first,  then adding blues of various transparencies to get depth, matching what real water does in shape and color.  I use acrylic paints.  Water based, easy clean up and they DON’T EAT THE FOAM!  Lacquer or enamel paints that use paint thinner will!
