I've got a stamp that has pine trees with snow. I know I've seen a product that I could use that would make the snow look real with texture and dimension. Anybody know what it was?

There are a few options. One is a product called goosebumps matte spray. The store here carries it.

There is another product used in painting called Masking Fluid. This you have to get in the acrylic paint section.

I have seen a couple of videos on You Tube using a product called Glistening Snow Writer by Deco Art. I have some but haven't used it yet, I am planning to use in on my Christmas cards this year (I hope). I got it at my local scrapbook store a couple of years ago for a different project and ended up not using it.

I know exactly what you are talking about - its is like flocking. It may even be called flocking! I've never had any of it or tried it but it is exactly like snow.

Flocking and Flower Soft both would do what you're thinking of (though with different textures).

I used stuff called Liquid Applique. You squeeze it on like a glue pen, heat it with your heat tool (be careful because it can get a toasted marshmallow look if it gets too hot) and it puffs up. Pretty cool.

I was also going to suggest flowersoft if you wanted that flaky, powdery snow look. It's easy too. Just smear some glue on, pour some flowersoft on, shake/tap off the excess and press it down into the glue.

I've used both and liked both. I didn't post pics of those projects or I'd show you.

One more thing, If you do use the flowersoft and don't already have it, I wouldn't spend the $ on the special glue. I did, it totally clogged up so I tried Glossy Accents and it worked fine.

What is the difference between flocking and flower soft? I have used flocking but not the flower soft.

I THINK that flocking looks more velvety from projects I've seen. I bought some a few years ago but haven't used it yet.

Flowersoft is more...mossy. if I remember right, it does come in something like superfine. Hang on, I think I actually do have a card here with it...brb

I use flower soft in polar white. I apply it with glossy accents and add a little glitter for a shiny look. I love the way it turn out.

I was going to suggest white flower soft as well...it has the texture of fluffy snow...

FYI, Goosebumps dries in a clear texture....more like ice than snow...it's pretty cool, though!

good ideas! About 4 years ago I made these clear acrylic albums that i USED and I bought the flocking that i got at Joanns years ago but it worked really good. I betcha that Inkado stuff would really work out good!!

Try the Snow Marker Paper and Fabric Embellishing. Its white, puffy paint that dries by itself and it gives you a "realistic" snow effect with texture and everything. I love it.
