Make Mercury Glass

Don't you just love new ways to tart up old glass? I do, which is why this mercury-finish idea grabbed my attention. Bethany has done all the trial and error for us, showing us how to achieve the best results. Here's what she started with:

  • silver leaf
  • adhesive
  • antiquing glaze
  • a sponge brush
  • glass vase(s) with a large enough opening that you can get your hand into it

I can't wait to try this. My bedroom has lots of silver stuff and this will add to it. I love mercury glass, but don't want to have much of it around because of all my pets, I'm afraid at least the cats would be to curious and would get into it.

Wow very interesting. I've debated about buying the spray on mirror paint, but this is a pretty neat idea too. More of an aged mercury glass than the spray paint would offer. Neat!

Thanks Maven!
