Just wondering what people use to flock their bases to make it look like snow.

I never made any snow bases.
But I'm planning a snow table. I'm thinking about using either this structure snow putty or this model snow flock.

"Uh, I better look in the manual... This book must be out of date. I don't see "Prussia", "Siam" or "autogyro"...

Hey,

I have done some snow bases.  I use the snow flock and add white glue (PVA) to it to make a paste. I them put white glue down onto the area I want to cover with snow and then I stick the snow paste down on the white glues.

Making a paste makes the snow look a bit more natural, as it sorta looks like a snow bank as opposed to simply flakes of snow (which doesn't look all that good imho). Once it hardens it stays very hard as well, so it is quite sturdy.

Hope that helps.
