Lately I've been seeing a ton of mercury glass projects on pinterest.
I did some
scientific research and found out that it is not all that hard.
The hardest part, actually, was finding this--
I searched far and wide--I finally found some in the locked cabinets at Hobby Lobby.
Then it was off to World Market to buy some 3.99 glass pieces.
(I wasn't that sure of my skills.
I didn't really want to mess up some of my more expensive glass pieces, just in case.)
Here are my finished projects---
they were very easy and I'm loving them.
So, here's how you do it...
- wash and dry the glass items that you want to spray paint
- spray a thin clear coat of the Looking Glass paint on the inside/underneath of the glass
- immediately mist 1:1 ratio of vinegar/water on the glass that you just painted
- blot with a paper towel
- allow to dry for 1-2 minutes between coats
- repeat 4 or 5 times
Easy as pie---
you now have faux mercury glass!!
