Waterfalls 101 . . I've seen a lot of attempts at waterfalls, and lets just say that they aren't always the best of results. So, I've put together this tutorial with the hope of getting some better looking waterfalls in your MOCs. First, you need trans plates 1x1, 1x2 and a white plate backing. When putting the trans plates on white back, use random patterns. Also, add different levels of height to give it more texture. Having the plates go off the sides gives it a somewhat more natural look, like its a drop of water that is somehow falling out of sequence. Next up you'll need a structure to support the waterfall. I always like using rocks. At the base, I start with a white plate. as the waterfall hits the ground theres going to be some water splashing. By using the 1x2 brick, the bottom row looks invisible, so the net effect is floating bubbles. Then top the white plates with some trans. The second row is 1 higher than the first, and there is a space between for the main waterfall to slide into. This is what the final connection looks like. At the top, I have white and black plates. The white goes underneath the trans clear, and the black goes underneath the trans blue. The final connection at the top. And there she is. The Kelso Falls. Your turn.
