View Full Version : Convincing fake snow/ice on clothing/person

Is there a feasible way to have halfway realistic snow or ice resting on someones clothing, hair, glasses, or on set pieces and props, as might happen in really awful winter conditions?

Spray on fake snow! I don't know about icicles though.

I used film snow, made of corn starch in "One tear for you".

There where also real snow and the illusion was perfect in my book.

Im sure you can buy that in the US too.

The good thing is, you don`t have to clean the mess after shooting.
Its decomposable and the next rain melts it away.

Ice on skin and hair is usually done with some special sort of wax like make up.

for years, Hollywood used soap flakes...
I know you want fake but I think it would be realistic to have the people covered in real snow blown by a real fan
if indoors, let the real snow melt as the scene is shot...
