just after some cheep ways to create a snowed table top, 6 foot by 4 foot.8Y
all comments appriciated
WEll I need a little more information about the table then just the size. Is to going to be a city, jungle, alien, ect. And are you looking to have any specific pieces of scenery on the table?
Perhaps try this:
Replace the white with a generic bright white from Lowes, I'm going to try this mix for some bases later today.
Cheapest way to create a snowed table top? White felt...
What I've been using (for all of today ) is baking soda. It's cheep, plentiful, and looks half-decent, now thats my kind of product!
What you do is mix 4 parts baking soda with 2 parts white glue and 1 part water. Coat this on (well, really 'blob it on) and let it dry. It will take a couple of 'coats' to get a desired effect.
HA! Tekore's link stole my suggestion! Oh well, this is simply me saying it works then...
two sheets of MDF, 3x2.
2 or 3 T-Steel strapped hinges:
one length of 10x20 PSE pine batton.
Attach all together as shown
The upper surface can now be painted with texture paint. Add some grit, lichen (to act as scrub) or shingle added (with PVA glue) to provide something a little more than just a flat surface. Don't worry about the final finish at the minute, you can add final colour coat later.
When all the texture is done, spray the whole thing with another coat (or two to be safe) of PVA to fix the textures you have added.
Add finish coat of spray colour (spray provides the best transition between different shades in my opinion)
You now have a lightly textured board that will close to half the size, will fit under a bed/matress with ease, and even when closed, by virtue of the 10x20 batton, is kept from rubbing against itself.
Total cost, about £15, including paints and assembled in less than 2 hours

Nothing to see here, please move along.
ummm well i currentley have: ruined village consiting of two farm buildings and a small Inn/chappel, 3 GW old forrests -the ones that seem to be covered in flock- and a few hills, i am intending on having a road that runs across the table and leads to the little village
thanks alot for that, i'll tell my friends, space isnt a problem for me but for them it is lol, I have "french doors" that lead to my back garden, theres a bulcony right above them so i have installeda pully system which makes the table "hug" the bottom of the bulcony. It can be lowered and swung through the doors into my room =D pritty nifty.
