How much snow powder do you need to create the look you're after?
That's a tough question! It depends on the size of the area you want to fill, the depth and the ground type.
Assuming you have a rectangular or square space on a hard ground, use the following calculation:
Width x Length x Height (in metres) x 1000. This gives you the number of litres required. Divide that by 60 to get the number of kilograms of dry snow powder required.
For example - a 1m x 2m box at 5cm depth would be:
1x2x0.05 = 0.1m³
0.1 x 1000 = 100 litres
100 / 60 = 1.66 kg of snow powder
If you're using the snow on grass, you'll need more as you'll lose quite a bit into the grass, unless you want to see the grass sprouting through.

As the Aussie Dollar drops, the cost of imported goods rises. The difference between August and December is a 15% cost rise. We are working closely with the factory and freight forwarder to absorb this cost. We are streamlining our operations and increasing turnover so we can hold our prices.
To increase productivity in our warehouse all of our water beads are now pre-packed in bundles of 30. This means we can increase productivity at the factory, reduce costs and most importantly keep our prices low.
Water beads will be available for order in quantities of 10, 30 and 60 at the same per-pack prices as before. In even better news, we have now made available a new bulk quantity for regular water beads of 300 packs at just 50c per packet! That's our lowest price ever for standard water bead packets!

A few weeks ago one of our Adelaide customers emailed me with this fantastic story. Elizabeth is a trade client of our sister company Beads N Crystals. Every Sunday she sets up her market stall to sell her own unique jewellery designs and her 8 year old daughter comes along to help mum. Though most of the time she spends playing games on mum’s iPhone.
Now, most little girls would probably take the money and buy toys or clothes, but to Elizabeth’s shock, her daughter said “Mum can I buy more water beads for next week’s market?”
Elizabeth told her daughter that she needed to pay her back the $59.50 for the cost of the Mini Market Mix and postage, and the remaining money she could spend on more stock. She made the wise decision to buy 10 packets of each of her favourite 6 colours. Definitely no black or yellow.
When I read Elizabeth’s email, I remembered a show I saw on TV a while back. Apparently many of the world’s most famous entrepreneurs recall their first little business as a child. Something like walking the neighbour’s dog for loose change or selling lemonade. Who knows, Lily might become the CEO of her own successful enterprise in the not too distant future!
To better cater for our international clients and Australian GST registered resellers, we have transitioned to an ex-GST list price on all products. This brings our pricing policy in line with Australian Wholesale business standards.
