1⁄35Making a Water Base, Step-by-Step
Attaching the water splashes and ship. . .
Using a drill bit the same size as the armature, drill a hole through the caulk and the wood base. Insert the splash through the whole, cut the armature flush with the base bottom and super glue into place. (Photo 19) After your splashes are glued in, attach the ship to the base using super glue. (Photo 18) If the caulk gets displaced, don’t worry. Carefully work it back in to place with a q-tip.
Working with the water splashes. . .
Take your silicone caulk and squeeze out a small amount around the splash. (Photo 20) Using your scrap piece of wood, work the silicone away from the splash in a circle, mimicking a wave. (Photo 21 and 22)
