Still experimenting with the Splashart kit today.

After mixing the Guar gum yesterday it was time to get things on the move.

had a few mishaps but finally came up with something better






This lot took ages to achieve... I was getting a little frustrated and finally gave in. Alison sent me a link last night to Corrie Whites website. Had a look through and decided to spend $20 and downloaded her book in PDF format. The best £11.50 I've spent in ages.
I have to admit defeat on the lighting... I need more flash units. I'll do a bit of doing without for a couple of weeks and send for a couple of Yonguo .
Until then I'll be leaving the water drops alone.
I've gained a lot of knowledge today which I hope to put to good use...... Thankyou AlisonGrin

I knew you'd like the book - glad to be of use Smile

You're certainly making better progress than I am - half my problem is only having the evenings to play but maybe I'll manage to spend a bit more time on Sunday. That means I must remember to get a gum mix going Saturday evening!
