Excellent Greg! On those B&W shots I can swear I saw Humphrey Bogart walking by.

Hi everyone, I have finally poured my Magic Water around Magoun pier.
I used 2 boxes of the stuff, and it wasn't quite enough to bring the water level even with my outer wood lip.
I will need to get another box of it to finish off I think.
I will be adding some wave texture on the dried surface for added realism, and in helping to disguise the wooden lip/edge.
I want the edge when finished to resemble the edge of a infinity pool.
Here is how it's looking now, before I cover it over with plastic, to keep the dust off while it dries.

Gregg, WOW, that's a BIG project but I'm sure you can handle it. Looking forward to seeing it come to life.

Greg, that's a work of art!!!! I had fallen behind on your progress this year and what a change since I last stuck my head in on this thread. I love your work.

Looking forward to seeing how it looks once you have waves on the sea!

Greg, Looks like you got this one almost wrapped up. Just a bit more for the edge and then "To Infinity and beyond!"

Thanks very much for your posts and interest guys!

Bob, this is the largest body of water that I've ever poured!
I was just grateful that I had no leaks anywhere.

Mike, glad you think it all looks believable, I know it's been a unbelievable job of getting it to this point.

Neil, nice to hear from you, and thanks for your kind words.

Thanks as always Pete!

Dallas, to avoid repeating my last water mishap, I'm not touching or photographing this one until it's completely dry.

Bill, infinity and beyond will be determined by just the right camera angle, and how well I manage to disguise that wooden edge.

Thanks again everyone!

Greg
