TUTORIAL: HEAVY SNOW

TUTORIAL: HEAVY SNOW

There’s plenty of ‘how to make snow‘ tutorials in the web. Some are better than the others, still I do preffer to use my own technique when it comes to modelling snow. During many years of painting I tested this technique using a variety of materials, including baking soda, fine-grained white sand, salt and couple different modelling snow products. As it came out – Citadel Modelling Snow works best for me, producing a heavy, white coverage of snow. Yup – some techniques make snow look much more realistic, but just as Modelling Tufts – snow should compliment the miniature’s colour scheme and style. If you saw my Gallery then you know that I tend to pick rather colorful schemes for my works, thus my snow must look strong, heavy and white.  Below is the tutorial of making such a snow…

Snow 0

I USED:

  • Super Glue,
  • Citadel Modelling Snow,
  • White Paint,

Snow 1

1  I applied some Super Glue onto the previously painted surface...

Snow 3

2  I applied a quick fat layer of Citadel Modelling Snow and left it be for around fifteen seconds...

Snow 4

3  After Super Glue dried out, holding some snow in it, I shaked down all the remaining snow and applied another layer of Super Glue...

Snow 5

4  Then I applied another layer of snow - even bigger than the first one. This time I left it dry for around five minutes...

Snow 6

5  I shaked down all the remaining snow and used a soft brush to brush away all the little snow specks that were left on the base...

Snow 7

6  I used a large brush to apply some White Paint. I did not use drybrush technique, just some wet paint applied with a brush moved in one direction...

Snow 10

The final effect on the table looks like this:

Snow 8

I hope you like this effect and that this tutorial will work fine for you.
