So this is my first attempt at an extravagant base for a showcase model. Holy crap water effects take forever to dry. In this image the water effects had been drying for 5 days. The white portions are places where their is still wet water effects under the surface. Has anyone else had this problem? How can I speed up the drying process?

He is missing a hand because I am waiting for my warp lighting cannon to arive, at which point I am going to have the vermin lord wielding a WLC as a halberd.

I wanna bump this just once because I really want to know what I did that is making the water effect take WEEKS to dry. It still hasn't fully dried and its been like 12 days. The bottle and the guides I read say it should only take 3.

I've only worked a little with water effects, but from what I understand, you need to apply it in thin layers. The thicker the layer, the longer it takes to cure. And sometimes it takes a looonnnng time to dry. I can't think of anyway make it cure faster.

BTW, your base is awesome.

Diggin' the base, looks wicked.

Only idea I can think of is the tried-and-true Hair Dryer

Ymmv, so good luck

We all need to look into the dark side of our nature..
that is where the passion is..the energy..
It is part of who we are...do not fear it ..embrace it
become whole....
we are both darkness and light.....
