Snow on Bases

Post  Uktena on Sun Jun 24, 2012 12:15 pm

After swearing off never to use snow I've changed my mind. I can't find the right stuff on GW website. What is the best snow basing materials you guys have ever used and where do I find it?

P3 or gw white flock. It's basically snow. You need to mix it into a paste and then apply because the glue will dry clear and unless there is a good amount it will not be white.

I've heard that you use Elmer's glue and keep applying baking powder. Put powder on the glue and let it soak in, then add more and repeat until you get the desired look. It will take several applications. Test any method you use on an empty base before you do it to a finished model.
