OK, Have you people tried this stuff?
Ice crystal spray turns any glass surface into a temporary work of frozen art. Amazing-ness in a spray can, (If you know how to use it).
Don’t worry, we’re going to show you how right now.
Amazon sells it for 2$ a can. That’s our “Magic Number” for how much a craft should cost. You can buy it here.
Start with a clean glass surface. VERY clean. No fingerprints. No Oil. No nothing.
It works well on all glass items, Mirrors, vases, …..We use ours on Hurricanes. We’ve had this old blown glass hurricane since the Clinton Administration, and it has held up well. I know the trend is more modern stream-lined shapes, but the curves in this kind of piece will make it look more like it was carved from ice……I promise. Just you wait and see.
If you’re positive that your hurricane is clean and dry, lay out a drop cloth or towel so your overspray doesn’t “gunk-up” anything around you. It will leave a sticky film.
Start spraying about 8 – 10 inches away from your piece and move your arm in a sweeping motion. Keep moving, and leave a nice even layer. I like to coat the outside AND the inside of my hurricane.
To speed up the drying process I fan the whole thing with a piece of cardboard. If it’s dripping anywhere quickly blow on the drips before it dries. This will keep them from staying in “drip” form.
If they do dry that way, use a wet sponge to wipe away the drips and spritz a new coat of frost spray.
As the piece begins to air dry, the tiny little crystals form in the wet spray.
A lot of spray will mean a heavily iced look, and a light dusting of spray will mean just a small smattering of ice. Experiment, it was only 2 dollars.
Try this stuff around the edges of a mirror above the mantel, or on a glass vase filled with pine and red roses.
But of course, our absolute favorite way to use it is with candle light.
When you’re ready to go back to clear glass, it just washes off with warm, soapy water.
OK, we like this frost spray so much we thought we’d try it on some smaller votives too.
…and hang them in branches…it’s a little hard to explain, but much easier to show….
See them there hanging with even more vintage ornaments? (Bet ya didn’t think we add any left after making that giant wreath now, did ya?)
These little hanging votives came from a craft store years ago……they are just the right size to hang from branches in a big vase.
And are even more magical when frosty and candle-lit.
So, what are y’all waiting for? Go try some crystal frost spray.
