I have been dying to make mercury glass. I think it's just about the coolest thing ever!
For the project I needed:
Mirror glass spray paint (I found it at Michaels and it was kind of expensive 11.99)
A spray bottle with 1 part water, 1 part vinegar
Glass to spray paint
The directions I found online said to paint the inside of the jar. I did that and got absolutely no results. I followed the directions on the spray paint but nothing worked so I spray painted the outside and it was perfect! I sprayed 5 layers.
Between each layer, I waited about 5 minutes
Once all my layers were on, I took the vinegar/water mixture and sprayed the jar.
Wait about 20 seconds and then rub to distress with a paper towel or a tissue. Basically you are popping the water bubbles.
The final result! I now want to change everything into mercury glass! I love that this photo got bombed by OMP and a tiki.
