How I made snow bases for my models.

I’ve been experimenting with baking powder and PVA for my Flames of War army and it was fairly pleasing.

Seeing as my painting has gone up a notch I wanted to do the same for my bases. After a couple of false starts I’ve come up with the following recipe.

Note to self. DO THIS AFTER VARNISHING!

Put some blobs of  ready mixed filler on the base. If you dilute it a bit it looks slushy. I found this filler in my shed and had a bit of a play around.

Next a very gentle sprinkle of  cake glitter. I tried a few of my Wife’s and settled on the white.

Finally a weak wash of GW’s Ice Blue in the areas where there would be shadows.
