Snow Display by TimBakerFX Snow Display by TimBakerFX
So, we in Southern California have to do a "Winter Driving Awareness" presentation. So even tho here in Southern Cali we don't have "WINTER", I made some props and a podium for the Director of Los Angeles's Transportation District to give his speech... poor guy, what's he suppose to say? I glued together all the extra Styrofoam I had around the shop, carved it into disneyesk snow blobbies, and coated it with some Fix-all and then paint and glitter! (I almost never get to use Glitter anymore ;-P)

I'm from Chicago where winter can make you go crazy. So, the photo of you with the foam and glitter, just makes me laugh. They all turned out great and I bet look even better in real life. Nice idea to add the glitter probably gives a really nice texture as well as glowing effect. :clap:

I would LOVE some snow... I often consider renting a snow maker for a day and turning my front yard into a snowman playground... just for fun ;-)

you know it, i really do love jobs where i get to make huge messes in the shop... and boy this one was one, luckly i know about anti-static spray, you can spray it on the styrofoam and it stops sticking to everything so you can sweep it up ;-)

I didn't think that there was that the department of transportation had much of a need for street signs with snow on them. ;) I guess they use them to mess with tourists and the locals.

Sounds like one of those "once in decades" type of phenomenon. :) The snow... not the suit. ;) Suits love to appear in any sort of weather.
