How to Make a Rain forest in a Shoe Box – School Project (Kevin’s Rainforest). This project was about 7-8 hours long to do (with the details it has) so we decided to record it in stop motion, this way you can see it built in under 15 minutes. We had a lot of fun doing it, hope you enjoy it. The water is a liquid called “Realistic Water” by Woodland Scenics and “Water Effects” by Woodland Scenics. For the darker blue water we used “Blue Realistic Water” by Scene A Rama.
