Response to Diorama Snow

See my article in MilMod, vol. 31, no. 6, May 2001, on the Chosin Reservoir. I use Microballons mixed into acrylic flat medium from Liqitex. You mix it to the consistancy of thick plaster, about a 1/4 Dixie cupful at a time, and apply it with a 1/4" wide flat brush. This allow much more control -- and deeper coverage -- than the white glue/sprinkled microballons method. You can push it wherever you want, layer it if you like, form it around tracks, tires and fenceposts, and if you don't like the results, you can start over again by removing the layer with the same wet brush. And it NEVER yellows or flakes off.
