looking for information on 'snow'---for my purposes flame retardent paper isn't crucial, because unfortunatly for the performace there will be no lighting design----I've breifly looked at theatrical supply stores, with no leads....any suggestions appreciated...would confetti tissue paper work? Im not above do it yourself projects, as I dont require a massive amount, --just a small flurry--not a full fledged snow scene :D

Messages like this scare the life out of me.

The use of flame-retardant paper has nothing to do with whether or not there is "lighting design;" it has to do with safety and common sense.

YOU NEED FLAME-RETARDANT "SNOW".

On the other hand, if you're absolutely sure you don't need the flame-retardancy....

well BOO!!!! tis the season for scary messages.....I have five dancers, at the end of their peice, i would like them to throw roughly a handfull of snow in the air, much like confetti is thrown on new years, and less like a full-fledged snow scene production, where it falls from a rig, (this is a no-tech performance),....there is no lighting and no smoking and no open pit barbequeing going on and very little danger of sudden ignition--the kids throw the snow, horah merry xmas, bow and carefully walk off the stage.....So, I am asking for help/advise/suggestion and if anyone can tell me where i might find snow--flame proof or not--i live on the edge--,,, or how i might turn paper into it, so it catches the air nicely and floats, please let me know.

It doesn't matter whether you think there are likely sources of ignition; it matters whether there are possible sources of ignition -- and there always are.

You can find flame retardant "snow" at:

Consolidated Display Co. Inc.
PO BOX 4108
Naperville, IL
T: 630-851-8666
F: 630-851-8756
http://www.specialeventsite.com/Portal/portalInfo.php3/ID_721/c_Supply+Sources/categoryID_288/___w_portalList/

or

Jauchem and Meeh, Inc.
