    I am new to this group as well as quite new to model railroading. I have seen an article about mountains and rock faces by Paul Templar. He says that you should cover the rock face with "household emulsion".

    Would anyone have an idea what this is. Is it paint?

    Thanks in advance

    Household emulsion is the paint you slap on the walls at home.

    I use the white version for my 'snow'

    I think it is what is called Latex paint in the US.

    How can you use household emulsion or latex paint to make snow? How do you apply it? Jon's looks so realistic! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    How do you get it on without fouling the switch points?

    Welcome to Trainboard

    If you click on the picture link and then do a blowup and a second blowup of the thumbnail shot, you will see that on the turnout showing on the left side the points and the switch are clear of paint.
