    You can find glycerin in the cake decorating section of some craft stores or at your pharmacy.

  • Road Rash

    Gorilla glue works great plus adds a snow like effect

  • Road Rash

    Add two teaspoons of glycerin mine works fine

  • Road Rash

    You can find it at hobby lobby or should be anywhere that sells cake iceing

  • Road Rash

    Found mine at hobby lobby

  • Road Rash

    I put two teaspoons in big jars a one in small jars

    I tried it both with and without glycerin. And I tried two different kinds of glitter. But it must be the type of glitter. That’s all I can figure.

  • Nikki T

    ANYONE have a fix/know WHY the water in our globes went cloudy in about 10 mins?
    We made 3. We used hot glue to attach the figurines etc, distilled water with a dash of glycerine, and each one had different types of decor in them (so its not dye/paint dissolving). Regretfully, we super glued the lids shut, as they looked great, the glitter fell beautifully + we had pre-tested everything dyed (trees, grass etc) to make sure nothing would bleed colour :(
    I’ve been trying to find a cause + fix on sooooo many DIY sites!!!

  • Vicki Wilks England

    Terrible project. AFter all the effort and buying supplies, they are awful. The glitter gets all clumped up and ends up in little balls, looking nothing like snow. The glitter that doesn’t end up in clumps is stuck to the picture I put in it so you cannot even see the picture. I thought this would be such a cute idea to make for my daughter, using a picture of my granddaughter. I was so excited, but what a waste of time and money.

  • Michelle

    I am trying this today and the trees I got the color is coming off is there anything that I can do to them to prevent this?

  • Michelle

    Mine are bleeding in color

  • Nikki T

    We tested anything we thought may leach colour by putting a bit of each item in glasses w/ water overnight. Glad we did, as we did find a couple things that would’ve coloured the water.
    Best guess for this damn cloudiness, so far, is probably the glue… Not sure what else it could be.

  • Tiffany Miles

    What is Glycerin? Would Micheals craft store, Walmart , have this ??

  • Vanessa

    CVS & RITE AID …& they were open 24 hours!! Lol

  • Rascal

    It’s a type of Medicine you’ll probly find it by the pharmacy

  • Joanne Vallarelli Adam

    how much water, how much glitter, how much glycerin – all to what size jar?
    all of the recipe’s and diy I am finding are not giving me amounts of each to use. I’ve tried 3 times already and still haven’t figured out what amounts i need.

  • isabella sterett

    You should use epoxy it works
    better than any other glue

  • snow

    wow you’re 8 and you know where to put commas. great job bro

  • Katie

    Yeah I know I can never do it
