I started my project by purchasing the Krylon looking glass spray paint. I already owned several other metallic colors I thought would be great to layer with the looking glass.
I continued to layer all three finishes until I got the look I wanted. The key is to keep moving your arm the entire time so nothing looks too spotty.
I also blotted the finish with a rag in between the last couple of coats to give it more of a mercury glass feel. I was going to add some dry brushing to finish off the look, but in the end was happy with the look achieved solely through the spray paint. I honestly think you could use this inexpensive and simple technique to 'mercury-glass' anything!
And here is the final product hanging above our bed in our master bedroom!
So tell me, what do you think?
