I would like to know how to make very realistic water using gel medium.
I know that there is some Japanese modelers that do mind blowing water scenes out there but to find them is like trying to find a needle in a stack of needles.
Also,yes I know that not only the Japanese can make great looking water scenes,there are others out there,but unfortunately they are few and far between.
So with this in mind does anyone know of any tutorials/how to videos to make such water?
Thank you

You wouldn't possibly have happened to have found any instructions for how to make wine from water would you ?
