I finally tried out the new-to-me Aleen's True Snow texture cream on my figures I am preparing for the module, G2 Glacial Rift of the Frost Gian Jarl. I am having mixed reactions to the Aleene's product. I initially tried using PVA Glue to bond white sand to the figure bases, but the PVA Glue was yellow Wood Glue, and it colored the sand… Then I tried painting over the white (now yellow) sand: image of Titanium White paint over the sand, next to the yellowed sand base (note that the glue is completely dried -- textured more than a year ago. I also tried covering the yellowed sand with the Aleene's True Snow. The results were less than satisfying.

Here are a couple of examples of the Aleene's True Snow sculpting cream, applied and fully dried: Yeti base, side; Yeti with yellowed sand base; Yeti base, front, True Snow applied over yellow sand mixture; Winter Wolf, MDF base, with white paint; Winter Wolf with True Snow applied to white painted base.

I hope to finish up the mini's for running G2 with full 3D terrain (finished, table ready, for the modular ice cavern wall sections; need to paint up the rubber base mats, yet, but with a Wagner spray painter, it should be quick work), as well as full mini's (90% completed) for this Summer. Planning to run this using 1e AD&D RPG rules to capture the full experience. Cheers!
