    Hello! I am going to shoot a short film, and in a scene a person paints on a condensated window with her finger (in order to look out). The scene will be shot in a hot/tempered climate but we want to imitate the effect as if the day outside were cold.
    How can we believably recreate condensation inside of a normal window - and without the camera being condensated?
    The solutions that came to my mind were:

    a) Somehow cooling down the glass
    b) Cook water in the room and let the steam fill the air (but the glass of the lens would also be condensated)
    c) Use some kind of spray

    Does anybody have a solution to this?

    I would think a basic home humidifier unit would work.
