I’ve now finished the watermill feature (see previous posts for info on the construction etc).
The wheel, boardwalk and pillar have been painted and drybrushed a few times to pull out the details. The wheel has some varnish and ripple maker added to try to represent the wheel turning in the river with wet blades. Some ripple maker was brushed onto a plastic tray and when dry peeled off and glued to the wheel to try and denote dripping water (not sure this is convincing, but will do for now).
‘Monsieur Miller’ has made an appearance and is sorting out his next delivery of flour, clearly ambivalent to the forthcoming battle along the river!
