Snow Special Effects.

Welcome to snow special effects, a microsite on snow and ice effects for film and tv. We create realistic snow storms, blizzards, falling snow flurries to ground snow coverage, icicle, frost and ice effects. Creating snow special effects is complicated; there are many snow products available, but there is an infinitely wider variety of snow. We use products supplied by Snow Business, we've found they give great realism on their own or blended with real snow, and so far have worked in any application or environment.

We've a list here of special effects snow products, together with a little technique, and other 'snow' products used in creating volcanic or fire ash special effects. Let us know if you are thinking about using a snow or ash effect, we'll be happy to discuss our approach! Ground snow outdoors SnowCel paper snow, Snow Ex Foam snow, PowderFrost, Snow Membrane, Snow Blanket, Polymer Snow Ground snow indoors SnowCel, Display Snow, Plastic Snow, Polymer Snow Falling snow Dry foam snow, SnowSticks, Paper snow, Tissue snow, Starch snow, Shredded polythene Frost Light frost using PowderFrost, Heavy frost using SnowCel (half size), Frost on glass (can be achieved by using FrostSpray from a can or traditionally with a mix of beer and salts applied with a brush, both produce incredible looking effects), Magnesium Sulphate Ice Frozen ponds, ice rivers, ice caves can be created using white waxes.

Our Special Effects Snow material is made by elves with tiny scissors who chop white paper into unique snowflake patterns, but you should probably just buy yours and hire us to spread it about a bit. The majority of artificial snow products mentioned on this page are available from Snow Business, we know them really well and will be happy to contact them on you behalf.
