Try instant mashed potato flakes. They will drift through the air, and you could experiment with mixing up the potatoes to different consistencies to form snow balls. (01/08/2007)
I don't know if they still make Ivory Flakes Soap for clothes or not, but I remember we used to get it, and add enough water to make a paste, and whip it with an electric mixer to make snow. You could put it on your tree, or wherever you wanted "snow". (01/08/2007)
The stuff you buy in the fabric store for stuffing pillows might work. Or maybe shaving cream. (01/08/2007)
Thank you, I will try your ideas, I think the Ivory Flakes Soap might work cause I need something that would let me do whatever I want with the "snow".
I heard somewhere when they were discussing using snow in a commercial that using shredded plastic, white of course...like white garbage bags, try a "shredder " to shred paper to see if it gives you what you want...just a thought ?) (01/09/2007)
My mother and I used to make candles to achieve a snow effect we would melt paraffin wax and an use an egg beater while it was cooling, for a sparkle effect we would use a shimmer glitter in the cooling process while using the the egg beater. Also using by grating it after gives "flakes" of snow that glimmer in the light. (01/14/2007)

Try Sodium Polyacrylate. (A.K.A, a powder that turns into fake snow). Just mix with water and BOOM instant snow! (11/21/2007)
In studio photographers pay top dollar for shredded Styrofoam. You could always collect your own scraps and shred them yourself. (11/24/2007)
