FROSTING WINDOWS (Duplicating Jack Frost)

This is perfect to create privacy, such as in a bathroom, or for

shielding an ugly view.  Make sure your windows are clean before

you start.

Dissolve 4 heaping tablespoons of Epsom salts in one cup of

beer.  This will foam.  Let set for at least 30 minutes. The

salt crystals will partially dissolve.

Apply to window.  This can be done with a 2 inch paint brush,

but  for a nicer effect, dip a facial tissue or terry cloth in

the liquid and wipe over the window as if you were washing it.

Then while the window is still wet go back and dab and pat at

the glass  with the wet tissue.

Mixture dries to form beautiful crystals.  This looks even

better the next day, and lasts a long time.  It can be washed

off with water and a cloth and is easily reapplied.
