MERCURY GLASS TABLE TUTORIAL
What you’ll need:
- Latex Gloves
- A glass surface (Table/Vase etc)
- Paper Towel
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Spray Bottle
- Rust-Oleum Mercury Glass Paint
Step 1: Clean your surface. I flipped my glass table top upside down and wiped down the glass before applying the spray paint.
Step 2: Coat your glass with Rust-Oleum Mirror Effect.
Step 3: Let Dry (In the image below you can see where there are still wet spots. Once the splotches have cleared you can move onto the next step).
Step 4: Spritz your mixture of 1/2 water 1/2 rubbing alcohol all over your glass.
Step 5: Use paper towel to blot up what you have just sprayed. You can use your nails and a variation of pressure to create a different look.
Step 6: Repeat until you get the desired look you’re going for.
As opposed to being see through you can tell that the table now has a mirrored finish. I also tried this technique on vases. I think any mantel would look FANTASTIC covered in them.
