How to make artificial snow from soda

Frames: Pinbusters/YouTube

What you need

  • Baking soda;
  • shaving foam is white.

Add about the same amount of shaving foam on top.

Mix the mixture thoroughly. Adjust the consistency of the snow by adding more soda or foam.

Such snow comes out plastic and loose, so it is ideal for modeling. However, over time, the foam melts and the mass becomes more liquid. It is better to store it in a container with a lid.

You can see how the snow will turn out from soda and foam in this video:

What you need

  • White cotton or wool yarn;
  • scissors.

How to do

Wrap the yarn around your fingers several times to make a thick skein.

Cut the skein in half. Cut the resulting bundle very finely with scissors.

For this snow, it is best to use thick fluffy yarn made of natural materials. "Flakes" will turn out to be more naturalistic.

What you need

  • White liquid watercolor paint;
  • PVA glue;
  • semolina.

How to do

Pour the paint into the container and add about three to four times less glue.

Gradually pour in the semolina and mix thoroughly until you get the desired consistency.

Semolina snow is good for crafts, but it is not suitable for games or decor of furniture and windows. Use it immediately after cooking until the glue has dried.

How to make artificial snow from diapers

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

What you need

  • 2-3 diapers;
  • scissors;
  • 250-350 ml of water.

How to do

Make an incision in the center of the inner part of the diapers.

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

Pull out the filler. It consists of a material resembling cotton wool and a white powder — an absorbent polymer.

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

Carefully separate the polymer from the cotton wool and pour it into a separate glass or bowl.

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

Add about 80-100 ml of water to the powder, mix and leave for a few minutes so that the liquid is absorbed.

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

Pour in a little more water, mix again and leave. Pour the liquid until the polymer stops increasing in size. Do not overdo it with water, the snow should not be wet to the touch.

Footage: DaveHax/YouTube

Cotton wool from the filler can also be put into use. Finely chop it with scissors, mix it with polymer and also gradually pour water and mix. But keep in mind that this version of the snow will not be so homogeneous.

This video shows in detail the process of making snow from diapers and its comparison with purchased artificial snow:


How to make artificial snow from foamed polyethylene

Frame: Olga Malin‑kaia / YouTube

What you need

  • Foamed polyethylene;
  • scissors;
  • coffee grinder or fine grater.

How to do

Foamed polyethylene is often used for packaging machinery. It looks like styrofoam, but there are no granules in its texture, so the snow turns out to be more homogeneous and airy.

Cut the foamed polyethylene into small pieces with scissors.

Grate the material on the smallest grater or grind it in a coffee grinder.

How to make artificial snow from starch

Frame: Maqaroon/YouTube

What you need

  • Potato starch;
  • soda;
  • cold water.

How to do

Mix equal parts of starch and soda.

Frame: Maqaroon/YouTube

Add water to the dry ingredients in very small portions, stirring the mass intensively.

Frame: Maqaroon/YouTube

You need just a little water. If you pour a lot at once, the snow will turn into a viscous Newtonian liquid. It will be very difficult to return it to the desired consistency. You will have to pour in more starch and soda, and then mix the snow for a long time and thoroughly.
