We’re having a blizzard here in Minnesota, and I just had to show you the gnome standing out in the snow. Actually, it’s more like ice coming down in little balls, and blowing, but I haven’t been here long enough to know what the locals call weather like this. Cold, is what I call it. 🙂
I hope everyone is having a great week, and that you have a wonderful New Year!

I love the nose peeking out of the snow! It almost looks like a planned photo. Great job!
I have been looking for something to use for snow in an ornament. I want something I can get into the ornament that will dry and stay put. Do you think this will work. Thank you
I’m not quite sure what you mean, Gail. The snow in the image on this page is quite real. Are you putting snow inside glass balls? And will it need to move? I couldn’t remember the name of those glass doodads that have little scenes inside, and the snow comes down when you turn them over. So I did a fast search on Amazon to see if I could find the right term. Snow-globe was the term I was looking for, but while I was on amazon.com I found a whole page of products called “snow ornament fillers.” I had no idea they made something like that. Would one of these work for your project?
What I am trying to do is find something that I can put into the bottom of a clear glass ornament that will completely dry solid and not move or float around
Plaster of Paris would do that. It’s heavy, though.
In case you missed the Gnome posts, you can find the first one here (how the armature was made) and the second one here (adding the waterproof coat).
Gnome’s little squirrel friend has been outside for about three years now, and he’s still doing fine, too. It’s made with epoxy clay. You can find his first post here, and to see how it was painted, click here.
