I wish to start on a N scale winter scene that sould be completed just in time for Christmas. What materials should I use? I heard plaster, will that work as snow? Steps that I should take? I am thinking of painting the whole layout with earth color, then cover it with some type of material to simulate snow. Those who have experience with a winter scene. Please share it.

Thank you!
Brandon

Baking soda makes pretty realistic "snow", but after enduring the winter we just had in Michigan there is no way on earth I could possibly create a winter scene on purpose. :p

You got to watch, the baking soda will react with certain materials.

baking soda...not recommended for long term scenes...the chrome on this Ford was gone after two years, and I only had it covered for a few minutes...
