The epsom salt + beer on glass is kinda neat. The crystals remind me more of the pattern on galvanised steel buckets than frost... its a bit coarser than the frost I remember on my bedroom windows... Pretty nonetheless and seems to photograph nicely with the macro lens + extension. Hubby said it looks like we got the windows egged... but like I said, the crystal pattern close up is nice. I'll try to get through a roll today and dev, scan & post later...

There is an imitation frost spray available in a can. We used it in July for the Christmas shoot. I have no idea what it's called the stylist had it taken care of.

Facial tanning unit a few inches away from the paper actually cut the time down to 2 minutes exposure per image :o so I got this done in a little over an hour yesterday. They're not all perfect but I was doing exposure by timing, not by inspection. The paper seems to react different to the tanning lamp than to the sun anyway so the whole thing looks like it goes blue, no yellow/green bits in the highlights, then again, no "negative" lighting in the shadow areas either. Can be a little bit odd but it's better than no sun and no printing.
