Turning my attention to the little pinholes, I was lead to this stuff my a model railroad guy - it's Chinchilla Dust. Evidently they like to take dust baths and the particles of this stuff is *tiny*!
It's in a mayonnaise sized jar, and it looks like I'll have it the rest of my life. Because the particles are so small that just a little bit of PVA glue, and then a sprinkle of this stuff, covers the pinholes without creating little mounds on the model.

Next, I went back to painting a few more of my snakes. I took a look at a few different species and tried to match their patterns.
Before ending this session I also added a few dead leaves (from the vine) to the base. I had added some Realistic water to help the wet look, and just stuck the leaves to the Water.
Thanks for looking.
