Thanks for th comments fellows,
well...it was a experiment. You are rigth MABO, is glossy.
Honestly I dont know how to resolve it, becasue is problem of scale, is because the size.
The material is "liquid cristal" a kind of resin wich needs sunligth to cure, first is with the paint more dark in zones in wich the water fells, then the "liquid cristal", then a selective brigth varnish over the material .
But the material it is not the problem, initially I made it more thin, but in a "crude eyes" its mind, without a zoom, the effect is not highlighted by the small size. That happens in some parts of the cargo box in wich I let thin the effect.
The the thing is worse when I wanted to mark the raindrops in the mud and in the roof of the truck. If I dont made it glossy the effect of the raindrops is not visible without zoom.
Honestly, I dont know how to resolve it.
May be just the brigth barnish and without the raindrops, just water, a illtle less ambicious... :oops:

Thanks Kostis, you know how it is to experience techniques and effects, sometimes you achieve it in the first and others you have to do it several times and go correcting.

Fred,
I do not know if a satin varnish would work, because what I want is for the water to stand out as bright on a satiny base where it has not been wetted.
What I did was just give a base of satin varnish to the vehicle and bright barnish in the areas where the water has wet it.

MABO
I think that as far as I could get it right with the experiment it went to the paint base, before putting the resin and the glossy varnish.
The business is to mark well the places where the water will fall, for that those parts I have left more dark than in the parts where there will be no water.
For that try to put dust (classic dusty with oil), very clear colors, so in the places where the water falls, the plum has been removed and is a darker color
My english is so bad, Ill let some more pics befroe to add the resin.
Till there thing was ok.
Then I add the "water" and problme started.

To define the material:

Must be transparent
Must be brigth
Must be easy to apply with a brush or even with something as thin as a fine electric wire
Must have "volume" to mark a raindrop, and that the problem, not too much volume to look glossy.
The problem, at the end, is a question of "volume and density".


Yesterday I was tryng just with "withe glue", a bit dilute wit water, and it work bu needs more layers, is more tin, but needs more brigth varnish later. May be is an option.

Though your work is wonderful in my eyes, it seems Liquitex gel and heavy gel could be the mediums you are looking for.

The last pics looks better to me, but your work in general is quiet nice. So no shame on you, of course. I have respect for the idea to take a picture as a reference...

The rain effect is very good. when I first saw it I thought the glossiness was deliberate to represent surface run off. Works for me.
