DIY | How to Make Your Own Mercury Glass

March 23, 2017

Every time warmer weather rolls around, we get in the mood to get crafty. We’re kicking off this season with our DIY Mercury Glass project for a few reasons–it’s easy as pie (seriously), no two pieces will ever be the same (so there’s no need to try to be a perfectionist), it’s a tiny bit messy (which gives us the perfect excuse to get outside)! And the best part? The options are endless! Silver or gold, from vases to votives, we may or may not be using this mercury glass technique on everything in sight…

DIY Mercury Glass

  • Rust-oleum Mirror Effect spray paint 
  • White Vinegar
  • Water
  • Spray bottle
  • Paper towels
  • Glass pieces  

1. The first step is to choose your pieces and make sure they’re clean and dried. 

2. Fill your spray bottle with 1 part water and 1 part white vinegar, and shake to mix. Make sure your spray paint is thoroughly shaken and ready too. Spray a fine mist of the vinegar mixture around the entire surface of the glass. You’ll want water droplets, not so wet that it’s running down the glass. 

3. Follow immediately with an even spray of the Mirror Effect spray paint, and then spray another fine mist of the vinegar mixture. 

4. Use the paper towel to gently dab the excess and create texture. 

5. You can repeat this process and many or as few times as you’d like until you get a look you like!
