What are you trying to build? A sea? A river? An underwater scene?

OK, so you can build the mountain and need something for water. If you have trans white or trans blue you can use those like I did in Blockage 2 for my waterfall. Do you have any snot blue? If not you could try using what blue you have mixed with white or trans clear and give the river, waterfall the rapids look. Last, if you have Photoshop, you can use white for the water, color it blue and add a water effect. I did that effect on one shot in the Seven Dwarves, but it is not that noticeable.

OK, go look at the waterfall I did on Blockage 2. It is not the greatest by any right, but it may give you an idea. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/164729

How about one of the better builders? Kelso? Phipson? Any thoughts? My only other thought is pick a brick at the Lego store if you have one near you. I got loads of blue snot one time. Wow, that sounded strange....I have to go to a meeting, will check in later

Bones gave a lot of good suggestions there. That's the main thing with Lego, you ALWAYS need more parts. One of your last options if you don't or can't go out and buy more bricks is this. Place the moc on a blue sheet or pillow case. You'll have to build the moc in two halves. Lay the sheet down on the table/floor/counter. Place the two halves of the moc on top of the sheet, however far apart you want them to show the width of the river.

If that idea doesn't work... it's time to buy more bricks.

Good luck ~ Chris.

Go for it! Just get the right head for Bones. He has the SMILING skull, not the mean skull Phip and Hans used. That one is only when he is mad, like when the Lakers lose or Starbucks closes.

If I don't have enough tiles I use headlight bricks and attach those color bricks to it so I can make a certain colored surface.

Problem is no Photoshop.

Well, if you haven't got Photoshop, there is a freeware version that is similar. It is called GIMP, just Google it and it should come up.

You could always try LDraw & LeoCAD (what I use) - unlimited pieces in unlimited colors!

I can't use it though, I have to use LDD. Whenever I try downloading, they say "Error Passing Line".

You already have an entire thread devoted to you and your collection here. Do not start another one. This is the advice group and we're here to give advice. Here's my piece. Behave yourself.

Trevor, one thing we do here is give advice on Lego creations, but we also attempt to help you guys build social skills needed later in life. What I was saying is this. You have your thread here for us to help you with your creation AND to discuss your collection. Not to mention the fact that we already have a thread devoted to discussions about collections. I was asking you not to start an entire new thread just to talk about your collection. Although that may seem like a good idea to you so your posts get noticed sooner, all it's going to do in reality is come across as immature to the other users of this group. When the other users see you do something like that, they roll their eyes and get frustrated with your actions very quickly. I hope you see where I'm going here and don't think I'm upset or coming down on you, I'm just trying to help you out. Not only here on MOCpages, but as a lesson that you can take with you.

Now that that's over... as far as you wanting to create water, there have been a LOT of suggestions here by numerous builders proposing solutions to your dilemma and you keep coming up with reasons why they won't work. I mean, I even suggested using a pillow case and you still came back with "Well, now where can I find one?" Trevor my young friend, we've exhausted just about every viable option here trying to help you, short of everyone here sending you blue brick... NO, we're not going to do that. Don't ask. I don't think there's anything else we can do for you here. We wish you the best of luck on your project and hope you find a solution to your "water" problem. In the mean time, please feel free to join in our other conversation threads but I think this one is just about done.

To make waves, lay down some blue plates, then arrange blue 2x2 plates in a random order.

Yeah, a bunch of slope bricks with their pointy ends faced a way from the beach, 2x2s then white 3x2s on top, and some slopes in the opposite direction with inverted slopes about halfway up the wave to make it look like it's curving would probably work. Hope that makes sense.
