The first application of "snow" is just a coat of plaster.

more to come

Bob, I've got less than snow on my roof at this time too.

Nice stonework and snow job. Don't forget some on the window ledges.

Bob, your snow has just the right lumpiness. I like the bits that hang over the front edge.

Frank, Dave, and Mike, thanks for your comments.

There will be several more steps to this "snow job". And even then I will only take it so far
and then I will have to make a tree and then I will do another snow job over the entire dio.

Dave, I love to do icicles but this structure is cold both inside and out. Unless we get a sunny
day to melt some snow I don't think there will be any icicles.

Bob,
Good reasoning for not including icicles although they do look neat in a winter scene.

My next step in doing the "snow" was to sprinkle and glue down some fine white
flakes. This evens out any irregularities in the plaster coat and gives it a little texture








It's kind of hard to see in these photos but maybe this close-up shows it a bit better.




There will be one more step later.

Bob

Bob, your snow looks very convincing.

Thanks Greg.

I cut a piece of MDF shelving to be the base of this little dio and added some styrofoam
sheeting to build up the back area. I know, that type foam is a mess with all the little
white balls but I happened to have this on hand and it will all be covered with plaster
anyway.

Nice shape to the snow on the ground.
Often around here in winter I'll see a tiny twig with one or two tinier green leaves poking up through the snow
next to some rock outcrop that gets warmed by the sun, hope for the coming Spring...

Thanks Bill.

I painted the area under the roof extension a dirt color and carved two sections of split
rail fence and the ladder from basswood. They are colored with an ink and alcohol mixture.
That hole in front of the fence is where the tree will go.
