DIY: Turn Your Plain Glass into Mercury Glass

For the past few years I’ve been amassing my own personal collection of mercy glass. I love how it feels classic, yet modern and can fit in with virtually any color scheme. So I was really excited when Krylon came out with their own do-it-yourself paint,

  Looking Glass. Now it’s possible to turn anything into mercury glass with a few simple steps. 

You’ll Need:

  • Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint
  • whatever glass piece(s) you want to paint
  • a spray bottle filled with water
  • glossy black enamel paint
  • glossy gold metallic paint
  • scrubby sponge
  • paint brush

Seventh House on the Left has a very detailed follow-along that will seamlessly guide you through the process of giving your plain glass pieces a new life (that looks old!).
