Mix a tiny amount of fine, iridescent glitter with Snow Flake Snow™ until the desired look is achieved, keeping in mind that a little goes a long way. Spray an already modeled snow base with Scenic Cement™ and apply the mixture while glue is wet.
You can also mix glitter with Water Effects™ before modeling icicles.
The 24-hour dry time of Water Effects is a guideline only. Actual dry time depends on a number of factors. Very thick applications could take a couple of weeks to clear completely. Environmental conditions like heat and humidity could also extend dry time. To speed up dry time, place a fan in the room to circulate the air.
This method makes very realistic ice blocks. Adjust size accordingly.
1. Apply a square layer of Water Effects onto a non-stick surface, such as freezer paper or a non-stick pan. Let dry until clear.
2. Add additional layers as needed, letting each layer cure fully.
3. If necessary, trim with hobby knife after blocks are cured and clear.
Yes, the Water Effects turning white after use is normal. It will become clear over time depending on how thick the Water Effects was applied. It also helps to have air circulating in room your water feature is in.
Water Effects is moldable, holds its shape and dries clear. To model moving water, apply on top of dried Realistic Water™ or E-Z Water with a paintbrush or craft stick.
To model a waterfall, squeeze onto freezer paper or non-stick pan in desired shape and length (add 1/2” to length for attaching to layout). Let dry until clear, then peel off surface carefully and attach using Water Effects as an adhesive. Dry time varies due to heat and humidity.

Water Effects will remain pliable. Anything set on top of it will stick to it and leave indentations.
