Making Ice and Snow

The icy floats were made with pieces of acrylic sheet broken into irregular pieces, cut to fix and assembled along the perimeter of the base in a manner that simulates broken pieces of ice (Fig 5-6).

At this point I added silicone caulking to start making the bow wave and stern wake (Fig 7-8).

The A/B base required that these pieces were attached on both sides of the top of the base (above and below the waterline, right?) as shown in Figures 9-10.

Hi Augusto! A well thought-out and practical special effect technique. Your choice of employing acrylic sawdust is particularly crafty since it won't yellow over time, a crucial factor since we'd like to think our projects will be around a long time. --Karl
