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

Bob, your snow looks very convincing.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Great roof for allowing icicles to form!
Spring house is looking good!!

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.

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

Very quaint and "cool".
||Posted - 02/18/2020 : 1:03:50 PM
Very nice stonework, Bob. You've done a good job of showing the potential of balsa foam.
||Posted - 02/18/2020 : 12:16:01 PM
Well... I guess spring hasn't sprung yet for this soon to be covered in snow spring house.

I agree, Bob. No since modeling what can't be seen. Looking good!!

I took a piece of 1/32 basswood sheet and embossed some random grooves moving with the
grain. Then I sliced it into one shingle width strips and the cut the strips into individual shingles.
These were applied along all edges and stained with an alcohol-ink mixture. Great
looking shingle job isn't it??
Wait, something's wrong.
well, since the roof will be covered with snow it seemed a waste of time and material
to do more that what edges might show.
