I am trying to find a way to cover a scaffolding block in Minecraft, but still be able to walk through it. I've tried paintings, item frames, and signs, but none of them worked.

Does anyone know a way to do it? I know this sounds like a really nooby question, but I've been playing this game almost since it came out (I remember the simplicity of 1.12.2, before Microsoft bought Mojang) and I genuinely can't figure out how to do this. Also, keep in mind, I'm not on Java edition, I'm on Nintendo Switch (Bedrock Edition).

  • do you mean vertically or horizontally

  • On Java Edition, single snow layer is intangible and can be placed on top of a scaffolding.

According to this video and Reddit post, you can cover scaffolding with snow and still be able to go down it, walk through it, etc.

This works because Minecraft considers snow to be intangible - that is, it has no inherent collision or physics logic - and therefore the player can just pass right through it.
