DIY Challenge

I have been wanting to try this DIY Mercury Glass that i found on Pinterest for a while.  I bought the stuff actually many weeks ago, many here would probably mean sometime in February.  So this UFO (unfinished object) DIY challenge link party got me to do it.  It took NO time at all.  Seriously, it took me longer to find the metallic spray paint that i knew i bought!

You need:
glass vases (i got these at the dollar store)
water bottle
metallic spray paint

Spray the glass with water all over
Immediately spray with the spray paint.

Let Dry.
Repeat the process if you want it to be less see through.
I did repeat.. though not by choice.  Addison decided to help me.. and sprayed the vases with water again, after they had dried.  I just sprayed the silver over them again.  I'm actually glad "I" did that .. :)

                                                                          i like.

                                                                liking the textured look.

                          i need to work on my photography skills.. but i am liking the craftiness!!

  1. So where did you eventually find the spray paint? With little ones, you never know where things might be. I once found the TV remote in a rarely used kitchen drawer!

    1. haha! well, this time it was all me. i put it in ... my craft closet. oh yeah, why wouldn't i look there! after i found that.. cake walk :)

  2. i LOVE that color of spray paint. Never tried the mercury glass though... I just might do that.
