Doing a frozen watercolor pour

I have looked all over for this info, so I am coming for your help. I saw in WC magazine of a gal who did watercolors outside in the Winter and got frozen pours. It looks really cool. I have two sitting outside right now. How will the "frozen" ice crystal look remain once it comes inside and warms up? I appreciate any help on this.

Usually, people add an alcohol to their water in freezing conditions, could be gin or vodka for example.

Re: Doing a frozen watercolor pour

Iím not sure I understand what you mean, Stetler. Did the artist pour the watercolors on the paper outside in freezing cold weather so the wet watercolors turned very quickly to ice?

Sorry to be so clueless, but since the weather has been incredibly cold here lately, I would be interested in giving it a try. I wonder if the ice makes the watercolors dry in interesting patterns when you bring the painting back inside the house.

Do you remember the artistís name?
