IS THERE ANYTHING IMPORTANT I SHOULD DO?

  • Practice, practice, practice.
  • The spray comes out very fast if the nozzle is fully depressed, so practise and develop a gentle spraying technique before applying to a surface. It's easy to use and does not take long learn. Snow never hardens and so is best sprayed onto fixed objects.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE?

  • Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease.

  • The can has to be at room temperature to work effectively, and shaken until the ball bearing rattles.

  • Fully depress the nozzle to spray a thick layer of snow.

  • Press the nozzle very gently to create a light dusting of frosty snow. Snow spray will come out very fast when the nozzle is fully depressed, so practise spraying onto newspaper to develop techniques before final use.

  • When through spraying, invert can and spray for about one second to remove excess snow from the nozzle.

  • If the red nozzle blocks it's easy to clear, just remove it and place it in boiling water for a few minutes.

  • To remove snow from smooth surfaces such as glass, first scrape off any areas of large build-up, then rub with a dry clean cloth and "Mr Sheen" furniture polish. Never use soap or water to remove snow.

  • If snow is sprayed onto rough surfaces it may get trapped in the indents and can be difficult to remove.

CAN I MAKE THE SNOW PERMENANT?

  • To make snow permanent, spray it with a good quality matt fixative/varnish spray.

 

THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES OF APPLICATION OF FROST & SNOW

 

APPLICATION 1: VERY LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW/FROST

 

Hold the can in an upright position with the nozzle very close to the surface. Press the nozzle very, very gently and fine snow will appear. Practise first before doing this. If you press gently enough only a very small amount of snow will be sprayed, just a light dusting. This is a light dusting of Frost / Snow on a sheet of glass.

 

APPLICATION 2: EVEN APPLICATION OF SNOW

 

Hold the can in an upright position approx. 300mm to 400mm from the surface. Press the nozzle gently and fine snow will appear. Move the can across the surface (or a part of the surface) in one smooth motion. The harder the nozzle is pressed, the more snow will be sprayed.

 

APPLICATION 3: DENSE APPLICATION


Hold the can in an upright position very close to a surface. It important to press the nozzle gently at first, and then gradually apply more pressure until you create the effect you are after. We make great snow drifts this way, up to 20mm deep. This is a close up of a thick, dense application of snow on timber boarding.

 

Alternately, simply point the nozzle as close or far from an object as you wish and press light or hard to achieve the effect you are after.

It comes out really fast if you press the nozzle hard.
