I've got some woodland scenics soft snow and according to the instructions they say to use spray scenic cement. I've never used it before; I want to put some on my tank, but worry about damaging the paint job. Does it dry perfectly flat and clear or should I apply it to the snow only instead of spraying a wide area. I want a snowflake effect instead of having it in clumps, so there would be many small flakes everywhere on the tank. Any advice on glueing on the snow without affecting the tank's paint would be appreciated including alternative methods.

I'd spray the tank with dull coat then sprinke on per the direstions... or try the other way around.

My suggestion is to use white glue diluted with some water. About 1/4 water. Brush the glue/water on where you want to have the snow and sprinkle it on. For thicker layers repeat this process when previous layers have dried.

White glue tends to dry to a slight sheen, I'd try scenic sement instead, they're supposed to dry flat.
