Depending on the age of the snow globe and where it is made, the "white stuff" can be a number of things. Older snow globes sometimes used crushed egg shells to create the effect of snow. Snow globes or snow domes made overseas may use a plastic-like composite that is lightweight, but sinks in liquid.
Some companies, notably SnowGlobeCentral in Denver, Colorado, are known for including a variety of confetti shapes with "snow" which can be made out of Mylar or similar material. They also use iridescent glitter dust and sparkles as options to traditional white "snow."
Small bits of styrofoam will NOT work, as they will float to the surface.
You won't die most likely, but you will get sick, even if you get poison control on time.Edit: Depends on the manufacturer. Some use a poisonous oil based solution and others use a non-poisonous blend. It is a better idea to NOT drink it, and if you have, check into the hospital immediately to get your stomach pumped.
You explain this: "When the clouds get really cold, stuff drops from them. That stuff is snow."
Your girlfriend is going to be dissapionted!! :)
Many souvenir shops sell snow globes
You can go to Lowes and Home Depo. I mean you can get inflatable snow globes ANYWHERE! I hope this helped, Madisyn Smith
Yes. People do make snow globes in the United States. For large quantities made in USA, try Double Exposure, Inc. For individual (one of a kind) snow globes, you may wish to contact Ferrara Studios or Snow Globe Central, which both make custom snow globes in the U.S.
Snow globes make awesome gifts especially when they are handmade with love. Kids and adults can make them for others to enjoy, and they can personalize them to fit the recipient perfectly. http://www.marthastewart.com/273254/snow-globes http://www.christmas-light-source.com/Easy-Snow-Globes-to-Make-with-Your-Kids_ep_47-1.html
It is very hard to see a human survive in that harsh climate, only a few are stationed there.
The collections of snow globes is done every where. There is no telling how famous it is. The actor Corbin Bernsen is one celebrity who has publicized his collection of snow globes.
Snow globes are manufactured by putting a transparent sphere made of glass, in this sphere there is a model of a landscape. The globe is shaken to churn up the white particles. The globe is then placed back in its position and the flakes fall down slowly through the water.
At the dollar store.
