from time to time you see this great looking snow bases and wonder how they are done. There are many methods floating around the internet creating a lovely snow base and as many professional snow products.
Which method do I prefer?
First of all I have not tested any of the commercial products like the Andrea snow which seems to be great according to several friends of mine.
I tested baking soda and baking powder but none of the two produced satisfying results.
At last I tried the "snow from bulbs" method.
You need a bulb (obviously). Only use this good old bulbs having a glow filament as the new bulbs like energy-saving bulbs or neon tubes contain toxic substances.
and something to crush the bulb
Put on your safety equipment, like protection goggles and some protective gloves. Then crush your bulb until you have smooth glass powder.
Due to the shiny look of the glass, you get the perfect snow for your miniatures.
