Snow on bases! Yes, it’s great idea… but wait, I don’t have any “modeling snow” or anything like that. It’s not a problem for us. We can make a simple snow base in only 10 steps. Let’s go!
What do we need?
- static grass
- baking soda
- vicol glue (PVA glue)
- super glue
- paints: Black (VGC), Wolf Grey (VGC), Skull White (GW)
- old brush
Glue a piece of cork to your base using super glue.
Paint the whole cork Black. I used a brush for painting this one, but if you want to make more bases you can use an airbrush.
Use the old brush.
Drybrush your base with Wolf Grey.
Drybrush your base with Skull White.
Use static grass and glue it with super glue.
Now we have to make the snow. Put some vicol (PVA) glue on the plastic pad.
Add a few drops of water and mix it. You should have something with consistency of sour cream.
Add some baking soda and mix it. If you are not satisfied, you can add more baking soda. Now you should have consistency of porridge for children. Add some skull white to gain brighter snow.
Put your snow on the base.
Wait until the snow is dry. You can put the base under a source of light, for example a lamp on the desk. After a few minutes the snow is dry and you can put a mini on your snow base.
