built for a 'in the snow GB' elsewhere

really enjoyed this one since i got to try a few new to me techniques
Eastern Express BT-7 done with a white wash winter camo, done by mixing techniques using latex and hair spray
the base is simply a flat bit of polystyrene, liberally covered with pva and a tub of bicarb dumped on it
realised something i forgot to do.....was going to add some 'snow' on the oil drums and on the stowage on the tank before i took some pics.....too late now lol
one for scale

That turned out nice Paul.

If it's not to late, give the bi-carb snow a few light coats of clear acrylic. It will give the snow a sparkle and hold it together better.

Cheap hairspray stops it going yellow, and gives it a subtle shine too.

Why bin the base Paul. Why not leave it as is. Looks good IMO.

2 reasons..........

1 is i dont have the room to put displays, im getting tight for room
2nd is that bicarb isnt 'stable'.........it will not take long before it starts to go yellowish and from what ive read it can also react to some degree become a sticky gunk......cos it will attract moisture from the air

ive read how sometimes after 6-12 months it will start to yellow, and start to turn to gloop where it contacts plastic......might be that you have yours in a really dry atmosphere

One of the reasons i always mix bicarb with PVA when i do snow, it dries quite water resistant and you can mold it a little when it starts to go off which is a bonus if you want to have snow hanging over the edge of something.
