Mod Podge?

I looked up that stuff, but which one of the million types is supposed to be used for the building of rivers? Glossy? Paper Glossy? Outdoor?
Do you just pour it into the riverbed like you'd do with resin?

No: if you're looking for something that has depth, Mod Podge isn't it.  I mean, you can pour it, but most of the water in it will evaporate and leave just a thin coat.

It's best applied by painting a relatively flat surface with your deep blue/black/green water color then applying coat after coat of Mod Podge, allowing about 30 minutes for each coat to dry.  By building it up this way, you can tint the lower coats to give more of an illusion of depth, and stipple each coat a little bit to create the ripples.

Thanks for the replies.

No, it doesn't need much depth. It is suppose to be a shallow, but wide, creek.
