    Does anyone know where to get something like that kit Donga recommended, but in North America?

    For snow ive used salt mixed in cold water to create a slushy sort of snow, then added some of GW\'s snow flock to add a bit of sparkle through it. Its fine for a gaming standard mini.

    I would just do a Google search on Deluxe Materials + US/Canada. I cant see a North American supplier on their site???

    The best sparkle effect i have seen was with pva and micro balloons mix, before it set, powdered glass was gently sprinkled on top.

    powdered glass is seriously bad juju for inhaling, i think alum is used by some, but not of the results.

    Over at this BrushThralls article they suggest the following recipe:

    1 part water
    1 part PVA (white) glue
    2 parts baking soda (bicarb)

    If you look at the example pics, it works very well!
