Default Re: Paint How To: Magic Crystals

My sister found this crystal recipe somewhere:

4 TBS Epsom salts
1 cup stale beer
facial tissue

Mix salt and beer together in bowl until salt is partially disolved. Dip tissue into mixture and wipe it evenly over a glass window. While the window is still wet , pat a moist tissue over glass. as mixture dries crystals will begin to grow. Crystals will continue to grow up to 24 hrs.

Add colour to your crystals using a drop of food colouring to mixture.

Crystals can be washed off most windows with a cloth and warm water.

I havn't tried it yet,maybe someone here has some Epsom Salts on hand ?
