I found a really nice way to do ice! It look quite reallistic! Watch your steps! It's slippery!

Hope that helps!

Well, paraffin can be found in art supply store or grocery store. It's a non toxic wax. About the varnish question, that I don't know... About the price? IIRC, it's not that expensive!

How durable is it?

That guy is using it for a diorama, so he doesn't have to worry about the damage caused by wargaming. It looks great, but I'm not so sure it would be practical.

wax isnt very durable, but I'd imagine that with a coat or two of varnish it'd be fine

paraffin wax...genious idea.

According to this site, the stuff is cheap.. http://onestopcandle.com/Merchant2/m...e=OSC/CTGY/PCW

$1.50 US for a LB of it or a little over $10 for 10lb of it...doesnt sound to pricey. With a melting point of @ 125deg F shouldnt be to hard to play with. I'd personally use an old pan or buy a cheap one at a store just for this purpose.

Great post! Very informative. I'm not going to try it (I ar*e up my own models as it is), but if anyone else does I'd be very interested to hear about it...
