Coat of gel on the sea. This started as a model of one of my dads trawlers but has turned into a "Hull fishing industry now and then" model.

What is the gloss gel you are using?

Hi Zak - it is Winsor & Newton artists acrylic Gloss Gel. I got a tub of this in a sale at Hobbycraft in Hull  a while ago.

I might get some and give it a go for sea. Thanks for that.

Make sure you get the structure gel and not the modelling paste, which dries white not clear. I use the paste for
bow waves and wakes.

Its even more FUN than you know - both paste and gel look the same when you pick them up, very very easy to get them mixed up. Will bring some on Wed to show you.
