Fun with Spray Paint

I've always wanted to try Krylon's Looking Glass Mirror Like Paint. On the can it says to spray on reverse side of glass for a reflective finish...I was hoping it would kind of be like mercury glass.

It was interesting to work with...not exactly as thick as I had hoped for but still the outcome was pretty fun. One small can retails for $9.00 so I had high expectations.

This dish came out looking like Carnival glass.

I sprayed a glass votive holder.

Not quite like the real thing...but I'm glad I gave it a try.

Pretty, you can always do so much with a little paint I say!
Love your ideas Jana!

what about spraying it a light silver first here and there and then looking glass paint after it. Just a thought...I've never used it.

If you try it, let me know.

I love it. A plain flower vase could really be jazzed up. This could be really interesting during the holidays too! Imagine a round glass light fixture sprayed, inverted over some twinkle lights for a display during halloween as a magical crystal ball.

I have wanted to try this stuff, but haven't found it around here yet. Not quite mercury glass though, I see.

Don't the directions say to apply more coats of paint after the first one dries?
