Do you have to use distilled water in a snow globe?
Besides, do you need distilled water for snow globes?
Fill the jar almost to the top with distilled water. Do not use tap water, as it can turn yellow over time. (Note: we can attest to this, a year later. If you don't have distilled water and you can't wait, I'd consider going a dry route, with sugar and glitter, instead.)
Subsequently, question is, what kind of glycerin is used in snow globes? Waterproof craft glue or epoxy. Glitter or fake snow. Bottled water, which is less likely to cloud up. Glycerin or baby oil (optional, but it thickens the water and makes the “snow” fall more slowly)
Also to know is, why did the water in my snow globe turn yellow?
One reason snow globe water may turn yellow is because improper water was used when it was filled. Over time, the sunlight can virtually evaporate the water from inside the globe, and encourage bacteria to grow in non-distilled water.
What do you use to fill a snow globe?
A snow globe is a delicate glass or plastic spherical ornament filled with glitter or "snow" particles, some type of scene or decoration and a clear liquid. This liquid is usually water, glycerin or a combination of the two.
