Oooh, the old ilussional "imperial white magic" is gone now that i have to relate the lovely snowflakes with borax and boric acid.. (never occured to me that kind of question...BTW, BT'rs are really stepping out of the box and being creative, ah? )
...standard fireproofing for all that stuff was and remains borax or boric acid

Just enough to make you feel like you're in a winter wonderland and it doesn't obscure the dancers. That scene is my favorite in the ballet. It is so magical!!!

My first thought about this was: cockroaches!!!
About ten years back, a small company I know used potatoe flakes, the kind used to make mashed potatoes.
My own favorite is the shiny variety of flake -- looking something like cut-up bits of that soft, stretchy plastic that looks like aluminum foil. Maybe it's just the coating on paper. I can't remember whether it was Miami or Ballet Florida last season, but one of them had a snow storm that really glistened as it swirled!

Bart, I thought of cockroaches too, but in another vein: maybe the boric acid helps control the population?
