Present for Christmas: Frosted Windows for Christmas

Making the frosted windows is also a great lesson in super solutions and crystallization.

To make this you will need:

1 1/2 Cups water

1 Cup Epsom Salt

3 Tablespoons  Liquid dish soap

Bring the water to a rolling boil in a sauce pan.  Slowly add the epsom salt (about 1/3 cup at a time) stirring until dissolved.   When all of the salt has been dissolved, add in the liquid dish soap. Remove from heat and allow the solution to cool.

To apply, start with a clean window (sorry) and use a terry cloth rag or paint brush to apply to windows.  Now, here is where you can get creative.  Apply to just around the edges, using a sweeping motion in the corner, or stipple it all over.

To create big crystals, apply the solution thickly and let dry.

To create smaller crystals, apply several coats of a thinner solution.  Before each layer is completely dry, take a crumpled tissue dipped in water and stipple over the surface again.

When the season is over, just hose off the window and dry the normal way.  Easy Peasy!
