DIY Snow Globe in Singapore
Snow globes are like miniature worlds where you can explore stories about your favorite characters. You can turn them over to see a swirling blizzard of snow covering everything.
Almost everyone relates to them, evoking a memory of childhood or nostalgia for a much simpler and happier time. During those moments when the snow falls, you create a brand new landscape where things are quiet and you just watch the enthralling particles as they fall.
The different types of snow globes and snow domes were probably inspired by heavy glass paperweights that became popular in the late 1800s. These heavier glass paperweights were made from expensive materials, so the snow globes and snow domes were cheaper and more accessible to the general public. The different types of snow globes and snow domes create miniature snowstorms that descend on encased dioramas.
It was during the 1970s when the snow globes fell out of favor when this epitomized kitsch but they have transformed into something more valued, intricate, and sophisticated among collectors and designers. Manufacturers of novelty gifts have improved their components and designs, coming up with unique gift items that often include beautifully modeled landscapes. There are some that incorporate music, lights, and motors to eliminate the need for shaking. Most high-end department stores also introduce a personalized design each year to celebrate the Christmas season.
The snow globe was made of glass and had figures made of different materials, like bone, metal, porcelain, rubber, wax, or minerals. But over time, people started making snow globes out of plastic. Today, the best snow globes are made out of this plastic material.
In plastic snow globes, the liquid is simply water. Glass snow globes usually include glycol, which is an anti-freeze so that the glass will not break if frozen. A little dust will not bother snow globes yet direct sunlight is not recommended.
