Response to Need help with Mud and water

I've tried resin with no great enthusiasm but courtesy of someone here a while back I discovered Impasto Gel by Atelier.

It comes in a jar and looks like old-style hair goop and takes a couple of hours to cure/dry from white goop to clear rubbery-looking stuff. It's not a liquid as such and you can poke and prod it into corners that liquid resin might not run into. Because it cures clear, you'll need to tint it lightly for a see-through effect or heavily for a heavily muddied water look. Trial and error.

Ateleier has a website for more details. The stuff is used to bulk up paint, so you should find it in art supply stores. There's a clear runny version and the white goop version, and you need the latter.
