How do I make "snow" from Ivory flakes?
By Sue from Waukegan, IL
I use a stand-up cheese grater to grate my soap for laundry detergent. I use the side that grates it the finest. If the soap is white it does look like snow. Hope this helps!
How do you make Craft Fake Snow Paste? I researched this web site throughly to find out how to make some fake snow paste for using in craft projects on wood and metal surfaces. I put in lots of key word phrases but only found two that I could find. One said to use Epson salts, Elmer's glue and a tiny bit of water, that was a total loss for it turned to goop.
I need it to be pasty and gritty so I can spread it with a wooden craft stick and then when it dries it ends up hard. Walmart no longer sells this type snow paste in there craft department at all. And I need to finish a lot of wooden snowmen and Santa figures using it on them by next week. So if any one has the recipe for this can you please tell me asap?
I want to thank all of you kind people who sent me ideas and info. After a lot of testing, this is the one I went with that gives good texture and sparkle. I took the advice of the post who suggest spackle. I had a whole bucket in the garage.
I mixed it with a little water and added regular table salt to give it grit. I spread it as thick or thin as I needed it. Then on the top of it while still wet, I sprinkled salt. On some of it i added a tint of light blue acrylic paint to give some of the snow a blueish tint. Below are two of my hand painted wooden items with the paste applied in certain places.
I plan on putting little felt snowmen I made to sit in each corner of the rocker & add a folk checkered rag bow ribbon to the top ot it. The other is an old window I hand painted on. The tiny red Santa was made from brown paper bags, cut in that shape hot glued together, filled with poly fill fiber, then hand painted with paints & the paste I came up with. They were drying, so I took a picture of them to show you all how they turned out. So thanks everyone I appreciate your fast replies! :) Julie
Does anyone know what I could use for fake snow on glass Christmas balls? I need it to be permanent and frugal as I'm making several dozen. I'll post a pic when I'm done with them, IF I get done LOL. Please help!

I want to know how I can make cheap fake snow for a tv comercial. Someone is going to hold it in his hands, so it has to look very real but it can not be ice because it will be shot in a dessert in the Dominican Republic. I need ideas.
I need fake snow that will stick to people for about 10 minutes for a church play. Any ideas? Thanks.
