    Thank you so much for all your videos. I have certainly learned a lot from you, tips and such. In your snowball block is there a fast rule on the size of your corner squares, in porportion to the size of block been used? Thanks lou

    • Hi, thanks for watching. As far as I know, there is no fixed size for the corners on the snowball, often you see them quite small. Depends a bit on what they are being used with, even just snowballs can be very effective with just small corners.
