My sister, Stephanie, is throwing a bridal shower for a good friend in a few weeks. In looking for decor ideas she came across a few DIY mercury glass projects on pinterest and decided to give it a go.
After checking out a few different tutorials, she chose to go with this one from 17 Apart. This is a super easy thing to do! And a really cheap option for getting some classy decorations fast for a party, or even a wedding.
Basically, you mist the glass with a mixture of water and vinegar then spray it with Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint.
After you spray it, you wait a minute (or a few seconds, if you're impatient like us) and then blot with a paper towel. That'll take off the paint that has been sprayed over the areas dotted with your water/vinegar mixture, giving you the mercury glass look.
Repeat a few times, to get the desired effect, and there you have it, faux mercury glass!
