  1. Paint several or one long piece of wood with your base color of your boat and then divide in sections and try each method of barnacles and see what looks the best
  2. You can get the snow paste from Hobby Lobby it's Scene-O-Rama brand or you can also get it from Woodland Scenics or anywhere that sells their brand. They are the maker of Scene-O-Rama. And Woodland Scenics is online also.
  3. Just a thought and was something I was going to try to use to make the barnacle look on some of my boats was from model landscaping or rail roading. Try the snow paste and using a stencil brush wet it down and dab it on like you want and then you can color it before hand with little watered down acrylic or water color. I've used this method on song bird carvings and it works well but that's the coloring part. Good luck

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
