    plaster

    i use Dap plaster of paris. it has a seting time of about 30 minutes and it takes paint well. i have tried the screen and i used aluminum window screen it works great and you can sort of see what it will look like when it is covered with plaster soaked paper towels.

    Sorry it took so long to reply, I,ve been on the road a few days, thank you for the advise on using screen as a base for the mountain, and the safety precautions. I'm not quite to that stage yet, but have printed your instructions, and will re-read when ready. :) :)
