There are many ways and ideas to do this project, the foundation can be formed by using chicken wire, or forming wire (craft stores, several types) for the mountain itself, many types of paper can be used, newspaper, (common) or, I suggest paper towels, these are cheap, flexible, and soft, for a stronger, still soft, flexible papertowel, try rag-on-a-roll, pulped toilet paper for snow caps. For the paint, all paints can be considered, from spray (rattle can, to air-brush), poster, enamels, even artists, acrylics, oils, inks, etc. Here's a site that will get you started an walk you through to the end: See related links below for link.
