Today I thought I would share with you a small project I did over the weekend.I dabbled in the Mercury Glass as I have always admired it in the Pottery Barn catalogs.
I have read many tutorials on the process so I thought it would be easy and fun to try.As the Hurricane was fast approaching N.Y. I thought it would be a good time to do this.First I went to hobby Lobby and FINALLY found the Krylon looking glass paint WHEW!! Nobody around here sells it! Well I got a 6oz. can for 11.99 but I really wanted to do this.I took some old clear glass bowls and hurricane candle holders and began spraying. Now they say to do light shots of spray as it will run....Boy they weren't lying!I think I got a bit loopy from the fumes as well.After 3 coats and 10 minutes of drying time I spritzed it with 50/50 water and vinegar and let that sit for 10 minutes.I then took my finger and just ever so lightly started to scratch it up a bit.I'm so excited with this look its so pretty with the candles burning.
