Hello.
I did my first show for a Little Child school.
Thanks for all advice in This site.
So, I bought some chinese snow storm from eBay And I don't know if it's not too good or if I don't Know how to use. Maybe its the two things.
Its is possible to do the trick just using a fan or I need a snow storm cânon?
I read some posts saying to use a paper dryer.
Thanks.

It might be an inferior product. You should be able to disperse the "flakes" with your thumb, while fanning it. It does take some practice, you need a good fan and need to really work it. You don't need a canon - Kevin James makes some excellent snow storm "ejectors". Google Kevin James snowstorm. Jim

If your snow storm is the confetti type check the paper separates easily if its cut bad it wont. If it doses separate then it the fan. You need a big strong one and as mentioned really work it.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

I developed a chair with a nozzle to shoot air straight up from a compressed air SCUBA pony bottle. It works great in my large shows. The darn thing weighs close to 50 pounds though. With all the benefits of this chair, I still enjoy using a handheld fan only. The hair dryer idea makes no sense to me. Get a good size Chinese fan - I prefer red. Choose your confetti wisely, there are differences. You can also make them, but you need the very, very, very thin white paper. I use a paper ball filled with confetti which gives me an incredible amount of snow.

If you commit to doing this, as this is the season to be jolly, make sure you bring a vacuum cleaner or agree with the client/venue about cleanup. Static electricity spreads the stuff all over. When I first started doing the routine, maybe 20 years ago, I had the CEO of a large firm cleaning up my mess. I felt real bad. Good lesson learned.

I got my last batch of "snow" from Kevin James but that was a while back. Not sure if he is still selling it.

I am planning on doing this in a show a few months from now. Is it better to keep the snow in the original wrapper band or pop them out and bundle a few of them in a tissue?

WOW! "SNOW" in Brazil!!! (hee hee)

By now, you probably have solved the "problem" of creating a "blizzard"!!!

BE SURE to follow the advice above about cleaning up the 'snowflakes"!!!

(This "advice" from the Upper Peninsula of MICHIGAN!!! (just south of the CANADIAN BORDER!)

Until Kevin James "invented" his "snow blower" a good FAN was the standard prop to do the snowstorm.

Its better to keep in the original band, because it´s "compact". If you remove the wrapper band, it will never be the same.
I think it´s made by a kind of machine.

Thanks for the feedback and yeah I think your right on the money...they look highly compressed in there. Looks like they were punched in a press to cut them so evenly.
