It may be fake snow, but it works just as good, and even better, then the natural snow. It is the indoor snow that is often used in Broadway shows and by movie makers to create the snow effect in indoor movie settings. It is mainly used because it does not provide many hurdles when cleaning up the set. Additionally, it does not melt.

Indoor snow is fake snow made of synthetic polymer. This material has excellent absorbing properties that when mixed with water expands to a size larger than its original size. It is possible to make the snow within seconds. It offers great snow to use indoors, and it offers no mess.

How to Make Fake Snow

To make artificial snow is easy because it only requires the materials for making the snow and water. To make a fluffy snow will require you to mix the synthetic polymer with water in a container. This should be mixed in room temperature. The snow then expands to 100 times the size of the snow before it is mixed with water.

There are several fake snow manufacturers in the market today who promise the best indoor snow that never comes to fruitions. To be able to get the best deal it is good to know what to look out. It is important to know the different features of the snow. First, the product needs to be in powder form. Secondly, the product or powder should be able absorb water quickly. It will enlarge and become fluffy. All these should be done without any mess. If the powder turns to gel than the product is not a good artificial snow.

Another quality that differentiates a good to snow product to a fake one is the fact that the good fake snow is non toxic. It is safe to use the snow with children and animals, and it has no effect on plants as well.

How long Fake Snow can be Used

To make artificial snow require you to use water. Once this water evaporates then the snow will come back to its original size. Therefore, in dry weather, the fake snow will not last long. This is because there is less humidity in the air. However, if it is used in areas with less humidity it is still possible to sprinkle water onto the snow to keep them looking fresh. It will take the snow about three or four days for it to dehydrate.

It is also possible to make use of the snow in the future. To be able to reuse the snow you should let it dry out. Once you want to use it, you can then sprinkle or spray water on it and it will regain its fluffiness. To store the snow is possible but only if it is dried out first. You must put the flakes in a bag and let them dry before storing.

How cold the fake snow will be is determined by the temperature of water used. To make features out of the snow you must first freeze the already made fluffy snow for about 40 to 45 minutes and then make any shape you desire.
