Topic tags/keywords: question technique water river

I’m in middle of a project which consists of a tree and river set onto a plain pine board. For the tree trunk, I used my scrollsaw to cut individual sections of the trunk, then sanded the corners so when they were placed together, there were these grooves all over the trunk. Any techniques to mimic the effect of a rushing river? I have a miter, scrollsaw, and router to work with.

Check in some of the model railroading sites. Google model railroad water scenes!

I have seen some realistic wet water scenes like this below:

I would try carving some irregular parallel grooves with a V-groove carving gouge

Looks like a mass murder at the train depot.
