Ths base was made from foamcore board with the "paths" to the doors cut deep within the board to give the impression of deep snow. The fences were then built as though they were deep in snow and were painted.
The whole surface was them coated in fine sand and painted an off-white. When that was dry about a dozen coats of white were drybrushed over the surface and some Woodlands Scenics snow sprinkled on it on as well. At the same time snow was glued on the tops of the fences and the small piece of stone wall in front. The dead tree was scratch built from wire and tissue paper.
There will be another two houses made to complete this village in due course.
