Tudor Portraits

This winter I've been missing the old midwest snow: I made some frosty-looking jars for the London studio.  
For the snow effect:  Take one clean jar, spray throughly with inexpensive hairspray (give it a good coat.) Then blow cornstarch onto the surface while the hairspray is good and wet.  The more spray, the frostier the glass - an old prop department trick I love. 
You can pat the cornstarch one the surface to make it a more solid coat, or leave it a little spattered looking.  One more quick hairspray for good measure and you’re done.
Easy to wash jars and glasses clean again after the holidays as well with a bit of soap and water.
