mercury effect drinking glasses



what you need

glasses
mirror effect spray paint
spray bottle
water
vinegar
masking tape


first tape off the top of the glass, (i only wanted to do the bottom part)

put your glasses face down on to a covered surface in a well ventilated area.
get the spray bottle and add half vinegar and half water, spray the glasses with the mirrored effect spray paint, then mist the glasses with the vinegar water and it will cause the Mercury glass effect, some of it may bubble, leave to dry. then remove the tape, then run under the tap

as the paint is no where near the top of the glass they will be fine to drink out off.

  4. I wonder after your done painting them couldn't you put them in a cold oven and warm it slowly to be able to make them permanent paint that is safe to use and drink?
