Creating Water From Foil
Step 1…Unroll the aluminum foil and lay your base down on it. Cut out a piece of foil slightly larger than your base.
Step 2…Set the base aside. At this point, decide how choppy your water will be. If it's a fairly serene scene, you may not have to do anything with the foil as the small crumple already in it may be enough. However, if you want choppier water, roll up the foil into a loose ball.
Be sure not to roll it up too tight as it may become hard to unroll without tearing the aluminum. Just keep rolling up and unrolling the aluminum until you have the amount of chop you want.
Step 3…Decide what kind of water coverage you want on your base. If you want the water to go right up to the edge of the base, fold the foil's edge inward to match the dimensions of the base (laying the base on top of the foil can help you start the line to fold).
If you decide you want some of the base to be seen as a border, fold in the edges more until you have the amount of base visible that you want.
