Snow product review

A quick review featuring the new SNOW products in the store - you can decide which is best for you.

Snow-Tex is the most like paint. It feels like paint when applying and has small chunks of texture resembling stucco.
I applied with a brush, but a palette knife works too.
A deep rich white color which takes paint well if you want to change the color for different projects, like brown for tree trunks, wood, or creamy beige for a layout with less white.

A foam texture snow, so you can get peaks with a popsicle stick application.
I added Ranger Perfect pearls and Tattered Angels Glam to mine for different colors.

Arlene's Glitter Snow is just like True Snow, but with a touch of glitter.  You can add Diamond Dust over the top of it when you want lots of icy pieces.

This is very thick and I would recommend a popsicle stick to apply. This has a chunky texture. Great for an icy snow look.  I loved using this with Art Glitter (pink) sprinkled over it while still wet, for girly scrapping.

All 4 work well, way fun to play with, but each for different purposes.  For soft snow mounds use True snow, Icy steps Fantasy, Snow tex is the most multi purpose but lacks the unique texture of the others.

Suggestion -  paint/swab a sample right onto the label on the conainer - you'll have the texture right there on the bottle for the next time you use it.
This quick video shows the snows at the end.
