Help Needed: Winter Diorama

Postby Whiterook » Tue Nov 17, 2015 9:11 pm

I'm planning on placing the ZIS-42 Snow Coach onto a Winter diorama base....

ZIS-42 Snow Coach


I have a piece of wood all routhed out on the edges, which I plan to apply paint to the edges with my airbroush. The part I need help with is creating the snowy terrain, and how to get it on the wood board.

I am figuring one way would be plaster, or another using Celluclay. But using either (or another recommendation), how to you adhere it to the wood base?

One cheap method here would be the one I used on my T-34-57 Model 1941 diorama. Celluclay with a layer of plaster on top of it followed by putting diluted white glue over everything and powdering baking soda over it all.

Intersting build up! I believe I bought ssome celluclay at some point, but never used it. They say it's easy to mix and use.

I guess the one question that eludes me is, how do you get it to stick to, say, a wood plaque?
