Magic Water v Envirotex Lite

Magic Water v Envirotex Lite

These two products are both commonly used on dioramas or layouts to model water. They are two part epoxy resins which are mixed together and then harden to glossy water.

I have seen this debate on the internet a number of times so you’ve decided on using epoxy resin for your water but which one to use – Magic Water or Envirotex Lite?

In this video I use two identical dioramas to show how the two products compare and which one is best.

Here’s the river that I based these mini dioramas on.  The view is from the Mount Rainier Scenic Railway:

  1. Good stuff Kathy. I wonder if one of the two has less creep up the beach than the other as we usually have to disguise that. Ron gager

    • Hi Ron

      Not obviously. I could imagine that the Envirotex Lite being thicker may not travel as far but I haven’t found the Magic Water too bad either.

      If you use resin, I think you just have to accept the creep which is why I tend to do my scenery after the water.
