Been procrastinating on completing a river for some time. I used multiple layers of gloss latex polycrylic that I lightly tint. Coming out great, I am satisfied but I am holding off doing the last several coats until I complete all the items that will set in the water. (Boats, piers, docks and logs in a sorting pond) I am hoping that the adhesion of the finish will hold the items. This method I hope I will avoid any unsightly adhesive mishaps. Any comments would be appreciated.
