I've been in love with everything Mercury Glass
and have been dying to try creating something on my own.
I found clear glass pumpkins at Walmart for $6.00 (sorry, no before picture!)
The Mercury Glass Pumpkins are the perfect fall addition to my mantle
in addition to the little round fish bowl glasses I found at the Dollar Store.
- Krylon Looking Glass Mirror Like Spray Paint
- A mixture of equal parts warm water and vinegar in a spray bottle
- A glass jar, container or Pumpkin!
I started with this clear glass round bowl.
I cleaned it out with a damp cloth and then made sure it was dry.
I lightly spritzed the inside of the bowl. Being careful not to get it to wet.
I lightly sprayed the inside of the bowl with the mirror spray paint.
I let it dry an hour or so before I sprayed it again.
I probably sprayed it a total of 3 or 4 times
ensuring I hit every spot on the inside of the bowl and sometimes
swirling the paint around and turning the bowl upside down so the extra paint could drip out.
I love the way it looks on the outside with the little speckles.
And each one is a little different.
Now head on over to Wal-mart and make your own Mercery Glass pumpkins!
Let me know how yours turns out!
