After a couple of rather long projects I have a couple of quicker ones to show.
First up we have some trees.
I bought a couple of bags of wintery trees from an Ebay dealer in China. The trees are supplied with the snow already on them, but just pieces of wire coming out of the trunk. For the two packs they cost around £16.
To base them I cut and sanded some random shapes out of some scraps of 6mm MDF. The edges are sanded down to the table level with the plan that they will look like snow drifts once complete.
I drilled 2mm holes where the trees were to be placed and glued them in with PVA woodglue.
Once the trees were firmly stuck in place I moved on to finishing the bases. Normally I would add sand at this point, but as they were snow covered I skipped this stage. I simply applied a nice thick coat of white emulsion paint and while the paint was still wet I sprinkled Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow over them.
I will give them all a spray coat of matt varnish to hold the foliage and snow in place.
A nice simple little project that took very little time at all...
