Making a Water Base, a lá Fulgoney
getting close...I will show the ship at anchor, in which case I will not need to white dry brush the bow wave and screw churning effect.
8. Continuing, I now fix the base with pva glue. One generous coat sets the whole base, and can be used as a finish. I will normally use a second coat, or use polyurethane for an even glossier finish to suit the subject and mood.
When I put on the second coat I will also cover the void where the ship goes and therefore cement the ship in place, but this will come later. The ship as shown on the base is a dry fit.
