SCENERY MATERIALS

Snow! modeling scene


SNOW!

Our "Snow!" is a finely ground marble dust perfect for modeling snow scenes. It is inert, easy to use and provides a long- lasting white.

  Part #112 ( All Scale )   -   Snow! ( 8 oz. pkg. )    
  Part #113 ( All Scale )   -   Wow! It's really Snowing! ( 2 lb. )    




Sand has been liberally applied to the foam base of our diorama


SAND

If it's snowing, we've got to have sand...
Actually, we use this sterile, non-organic, salt-free sand for our mining scene. It's a nice neutral light-tan, slightly salt & pepper, fine grain suitable for your base. We sprinkle on some colorants (like our Weathering Chalks #107) along with Woodland Scenics and we are there. Set in place with diluted matte medium or glue.
Your cat will love it!

  Part #116 ( All Scale )   -   Sand ( 8 oz. pkg. )    
  Part #117 ( All Scale )   -   The Sand Box ( 2 lb. )    



Carvable foam base for models

CARVABLE FOAM BASE

16" X 12" X 1-1/2" rigid foam base for building your models on. Same stuff you can find at a Home Depot or other building supply, but if you don't need a whole sheet, or that's too far away, here you go. We used to get it in a neutral tan but that's way too expensive.

  Part #101   -   Carvable Foam Base - 16" x 12" x 1-1/2"



Vermiculite mud


VERMICULITE "MUD"

We use this on our layout and dioramas to model earth. Mix it with a little water, before or after applying, let it set up overnight, and you have the perfect base for your scenery. It can be carved, holes poked in it to plant trees, etc. The best thing is it's a natural gray, so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb (like hardshell will) if a little is exposed, or becomes chipped. Use over your hardshell, about one inch thick, above or below your rock molds.

  Part #114 ( All Scale )   -   Vermiculite "Mud" - 2-1/2 lbs.   


FRESH WHITE HYDROCAL

For those who live out in the sticks or cannot Hydrocal locally the US Postal Service has a deal for you. The Flat Rate box! We can fill a double-lined 11 x 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch box with about 16 pounds of fresh White Hydrocal, the same stuff C. C. Crow and others use for their fine scale castings, hard-shell scenery, and other such applications. This is the pure stuff, not mixed with impurities, watered down with foam, sand, or bark. You can probably get a better deal at your local pottery supply but if that's not convenient and/or you just need a little its offered here.

Because the box will be FULL additional items will be treated/shipped separately. The current USPS flat rate will be applied.

  Part #118 ( All Scale )   -   White Hydrocal ( 16 lb. )    




Seaweed / Kelp


SEAWEED / KELP

Translucent green strands with long blades are ideal for modeling tidal areas. Can be used with resin to model plants suspended in water, or piled-up along the shoreline as wrack. Sorry, that saltly (dead seaweed) sea smell is not included.

Now back in stock!

  Part #258 ( All Scale )   -   Seaweed / Kelp
