What's the Liquid in the Snow Globe?

“What’s the liquid in the snow globe?” We get asked this question all the time. Let me tell you that the liquid used in our custom made snow globes is very important. In fact you really couldn’t have a snow globe made by us without the liquid in the snow globe.

Let me explain that the liquid we use in our snow globe serves as a medium through which the wide range of confetti floats in and is displayed in the “Choose Your Confetti” section of this site which is in “build a snow globe” location. The action to start the floating process happens by shaking the snow globe which activates the liquid. Activating the liquid causes the snow, hearts dust or what ever confetti is chosen to float slowly through out the glass globe. The chosen confetti will slowly float down (sinking action caused by gravity) resting at the bottom of the snow globe, until the shaking process happens again.

Ok, ok, what is the liquid in the snow globe? That is really what everybody wants to know but the other processes are just as important. Well here it is. First, the liquid has to be clear. Secondly, it is important to have the clear liquid because it lets you see the action of the confetti which is floating slowly in the glass globe. Thirdly it is wet and if you break your snow globe you will also discover the forth fact about the liquid in the snow globe is that it is messy. Now you know what the liquid is in our custom designed and made snow globes. I hope I answered your curiosity.

Jennifer Brown's Story

My son had given me a beautiful snow globe in 2007. In 2010, my daughter accidentally broke it. I was heart broken. I finally fournd Snow Globe Central and shipped it off to them with high hopes - and they delivered! They called me with an estimate which was incredibly low priced and a 2 week turn around time which was fantastic. They are WONDERFUL to work with and they did a fantastic job! I would definitely recommend them with your precious keepsakes!
