Step 1: Here's How

Frosting glass is created by sandblasting or acid etching a sheet glass, which distorts the light to create a blurred effect. To counter this you can stick a piece of sellotape on the frosted glass. The sellotape smooths over the sandblasting turning it back to a transparent window.


  • If the glass is frosted on both sides you will need a piece of sellotape both sides.
  • The deeper the frosting the less effective this trick will be.
