Poseidon needed more speed!

When a boat rushes through the water you see a bow wave spread out so maybe the angler fish should make one too.

I gathered up some 1mm acrylic sheet, some upholstery stuffing, some gloss varnish and some inks and had a go at making a wave.

I cut out a basic shape from the acrylic sheet using some tin-snips and formed it into a wave shape with a hot-air gun and plenty of patience.

I then superglued some of the upholstery filler to the edges to represent spray.

I did use some contrast paints (Warp Lightning & Aethermatic Blue) and some blue & green inks (Rowney Kandahar Drawing Inks: 123 Ultramarine Blue & 349 Green) on the plastic as I wanted it to be mainly transparent or translucent.

I like how it came out but I still haven’t decided if I will glue it permanently to the model…

And then I went silly…
