Great job on the snow, Bob. The whole scene is shaping up nicely.
Ensign Posted - 02/23/2020 : 12:41:45 PM
Bob, It's all coming together very well!
I look forward to seeing how you go about making the tree that you have planned for this scene.

Thanks Mike, Carl, Greg, and Rich.

I glued real dirt down in that area under the roof extension. Then I added weeds, grass,
and some dried leaves to clutter it up a bit

Now I am at a breaking point. I need to make the tree and glue it into that hole before I
add the plaster "snow" to the main area so I will set the dio aside for the time being and
get to work on the tree.

Pennman Posted - 02/22/2020 : 11:40:08 AM

This Dio sure is developing progressively. Perhaps if you included some daffodils protruding through the snow, Spring time would be just around the corner. Looks good.

Ensign Posted - 02/22/2020 : 11:22:10 AM
Bob, It's certainly looking cooler!

Carl B Posted - 02/22/2020 : 10:37:30 AM
What Mike said!
Michael Hohn Posted - 02/22/2020 : 10:27:18 AM
Keeps getting better and better, Bob.

sgtbob Posted - 02/22/2020 : 04:54:27 AM
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.


Bill Gill Posted - 02/21/2020 : 08:30:38 AM
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...
sgtbob Posted - 02/21/2020 : 05:53:16 AM
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

Ensign Posted - 02/20/2020 : 09:10:24 AM
Bob, your snow looks very convincing.

Greg Shinnie
sgtbob Posted - 02/20/2020 : 06:59:45 AM
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.

Guff Posted - 02/19/2020 : 10:04:55 AM
Good reasoning for not including icicles although they do look neat in a winter scene.
sgtbob Posted - 02/19/2020 : 09:45:52 AM
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.

sgtbob Posted - 02/19/2020 : 09:43:32 AM
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.
