This paper describes a method to realize an interactive manipulation of virtual liquid using virtual vessels which are expressed by the general convex shape polyhedron. We have proposed the liquid manipulation model which has some functions to treat the relation between the volume of liquid in a vessel and the height level of liquid surface in it while it is tilted. For a general shape vessel, the look up table to calculate the above functions is implemented. Our system with this proposed model makes it possible to catch the liquid using the virtual vessel, to hold the liquid in it, then to spill the liquid by tilting it. Also the system realizes the manipulation to skim the liquid from another liquid vessel.
