How To Make Snow


This Snow In Christmas Village Scene

The following procedure uses inexpensive materials to make beautiful light snow suitable for dioramas, winter scenes, and train layouts. 



How To Make Snow

  1. Add 1 cup of baking soda to a bowl. 
  2. Add a small amount of inexpensive foam shaving cream. 
  3. Mix well until combined. 
  4. Adjusted density of the snow by adding more shaving cream or more baking soda.
  5. Add glitter for more effect. 

Less shaving cream added to the bowl results in a finer snow that is very easy to distribute through a fine mesh strainer. 

Denser snow, made by adding more shaving cream, is great for making snowdrifts and the like.
