Rusting up an old Impala

In the July 2011 FSM, Karl Logan models a junker after a car he found at a racetrack near his Pennsylvania hometown. Here's more information on his techniques for adding snow and making the model's base.

After my Impala was built and painted, it was time to add the snow and groundwork. First I prepared a wooden plaque with a few coats of varnish and let it dry. Then I mixed Celluclay in a plastic container with a little white glue and white acrylic paint. I wrapped the mixture in an old T-shirt and squeezed out excess moisture. The more water in the Celluclay when it's applied, the more it will shrink and crack later.
