Water-Drops® "color" – They’ll Blow the Competition Out of the Water!
Designing bodies of water with Water-Drops® "color"
Water-Drops® are the ideal material for reproducing stagnant and running bodies of water in a model. Two things make Water-Drops® indispensable when designing a body of water: their easy processing and the possibility of re-melting the body of water after hardening (e.g. with a powerful hairdryer). Waves can therefore be modelled subsequently, or scratches removed from the surface of the body of water. The Water-Drops® are offered in the variants "clear", "easy" and "color".
Two things make Water-Drops® indispensable when designing a body of water: their easy processing and the possibility of subsequently designing details such as waves or rapids by heating.
Benefits of using Water-Drops® "color":
- Easy processing
- Fast-working (short curing time)
- Easy to colour in
- Reworking possible by heating
As a product family, Water-Drops® are available in three variants:
- Water-Drops® "clear" are ideal for designing crystal clear lakes, rivers and streams. We recommend the "Waters Colour Set" for designing the colour of the bed.
- In addition to the transparent drops, Water-Drops® "color" also contain blue, green and brown drops for mixing. This is how you can customise your own water colour.
- Lastly, Water-Drops® "easy" make working with Water-Drops® even easier. Simply remove the lid and place the plastic heat-resistant cup in the oven to melt them.
Warning: risk of burns! Wear gloves!
Do not heat in the microwave! Only suitable for adult hobbyists.

A major advantage of the Water-Drops® is that changes can even be made to the water surface itself after hardening. Due to the low melting point of the Water-Drops®, the material can be melted and reworked with a hairdryer. By using a heat gun, the entire Water-Drops® body of water can even be liquefied again. Consequently, this product is ideal for subsequently designing waves or rapids.
However, there are a few important things to keep in mind when using the Water-Drops®.
To ensure that the plasticiser is completely merged with the Water-Drops®, it’s necessary to stir the melted Water-Drops® very well with a metallic object such as a screwdriver or an old spoon. In addition, the Water-Drops® should not be heated in the microwave. Due to the hot processing, they are also only suitable for adult hobbyists.
After the lake has cooled down, you can also apply Waves & Billows to the surface with a putty knife and mould the mixture.
The shore area is then decorated. The Grass Tufts are ideally suited to this. To attach the Grass Tufts, it’s best to use tweezers.
