Pounce bags can be filled with a variety of materials, be wary of flambility and flash fires.
Use a fullers earth substitute as fullers earth has been shown to cause health problems.

in a week or so i will be shooting a scene where a character is surrounded by hazy light coming in through a window. A 4K HMI PAR will be parked outside the window. The shot will be performed in a near profile, the background behind the shaft of light will of course be in the shadow, with little detail.
Do you have any visual references you can post to give us an idea of the look you are going for. If it is what I think it is, there are easier ways to accomplish it.

DO NOT USE FLOUR it can explode!
Most non-flammable materials, like stone dusts of various kinds, are also bad for your lungs. Chemically inert ain't good enough, any tiny particulates are bad if you breathe them. Get good dust/gas masks, and a HEPA filter shop vac to clean up afterwards.
