Nice start. Whats your secret on the tool (wood) handles?

Hi Paulster i used this

Applied it watered down like a wash on a pale yellow undercoat about 3 coats you can draw a wood grain on your undercoat for a different effect.

Blimey !!  Is there anything you can't turn your hand to?  I love the effect you've achieved and, yet again, at your first attempt!  It's not fair to us mere mortals !!

 

This is purely for information and a slightly redundant mention of a product called "Precision Ice & Snow" (I say redundant because of how you've created such a cracking snow/winter effect already).... http://www.precisioniceandsnow.com/

 

 Great job !
