Create Your Own Faux Mercury Glass For Under Five Dollars!


Do you love the look of mercury glass?  The look has a vintage, worn out shine.   Some of the online vases can cost upwards of $140 for ONE.   I am not sure who has that in their budget.

Here is a technique that will allow you to create your own mercury glass for less.  All you need is something oversized.  Look at glass hurricane lanterns, glass vases, or bowls that you can find at your local Goodwill. Look for big and oversized.  What you need next is a can of Krylon Looking Glass Paint. Watch her youtube tutorial at
