Create this effect in Photoshop?

Do you think it's possible to create a frost effect in Photoshop,
similar to this.
If so how would you do it?

There should be some downloadable Actions out there. Try searching on the net for some.

They are pictures.
I'm looking for a way to get the same effect as in the picture...savvy?



I've looked all over the internet for a filter/action/plugin,
but it's almost impossible to find anything.
I thought maybe someone here had an idea how to do it.

This probably isn't a great Idea but...

Suggestion 1. Make a new layer, change the size of the picture of frost (talking about frost2) and tile it, and change the opacity.

Suggestion 2. On a black background, take a large brush, change the colour to just off white, and make your pattern of frost, then feather brush it a little bit, and take a brush of a smaller pixel size, change the opacity to about 20%, the colour to bright white, and choose 'Colour burn' in the brush effects and paint all over where the light in the ice should shine.

Yes that helped along with some other things I did.
I sampled areas of the images and made custom brushes out of the samples.
Then using different setting in the brushes, and some of the
things you mentioned, started creating a frost effect by painting.
Still not quite there yet, but working on it.

@DragonSon...I found a frost Action, but it looked terrible.
I decided I could do better myself.
But it's really taking allot of steps to get right.

I'm going to try out something when I get home with the spatter eraser. Perhaps a black background then use the white spatter to create the frost effect... we'll see. I tried it a little here at work, but it'll take a little extra effort to get right.
