Hey guys, I've got a couple projects coming up that require large amounts of a crystal clear water-like compound. Is there a good source for an epoxy resin/ acrylic water or a better substitute available that will give the appearance of water and will accept a colored dye for tinting? The cheapest I've come across is about $40 shipped for 64oz.

Thanks in advance!

I don't remember the brand, but there's stuff used by model railroaders for making water. Some kind of thin clear acrylic medium.

Alumilite, water clear acrylic.

It's not cheap, but it's good.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Any others out there?

go to a fibreglass supplier and ask for a "clear casting resin" ( fast setting )

another type is used by fishing rod builders for rod bindings, and is a 2 part resin
the only problem with using this stuff it takes 24hrs to set, but air bubbles can be removed with a hair dryer!
