Just curious, does anyone know how to make snow scenery? Could you list the process and materials please. Thank you in advance.
On Boards I used Texture Paint with what is IMO a very snow like texture, I plan to Spray it white.
Most of my Snow Terrain is store bought, so I can't really help you there, but the Texture paint works well if your going to be placing the peices on bases made of MDF or foamboard, just be careful to not put it on thick on foamboard, it will bend and bow.
From experience I can say that if you are going to be making snow scenery then you need baking soda. On boards you get a smooth surface, paint it white, apply a thin lair of watered down PVA, then sprinkle (Dont go too light) a lair of baking soda on it. For terrain pieces you mix the PVA, water and baking soda and then apply it in evenly on the surface of your choice. Apperantly in some climates your snow will turn a shade of yellow after a few months but i've never had this problem. This article is a good example of the results: http://www.librarium-online.com/arti...howarticle=157.

War necessitates a different set of morals.
Mine will do.
For an even more realistic snow appearance you can use the same steps mentioned above in the tutorial and use Techstar Snowflakes instead. I a have found that the micro-beads in the techstar snowflakes are much more "realistic" looking than baking soda or other brands of snow.
or you could just buy the snow flakes depending on how much you are looking for.

HObby stores that sell train stuff sell snow in a box thingy... thats what I use... some times you need two layers of it though to get the show to show up on dark surfaces, but looks realy cool and feels neeto too ^_^

I have tried a few of the different brands of snow - including the woodland scenics snow (found usually at model railroad stores) and still believe that the techstar snowflakes have the most realistic look to them.
