DIY Mercury glass mason jars. Looking glass spray paint, equal parts vinegar/water spray bottle. Spray with water mix then add light coat of spray paint. Allow to dry. Use a paper towel to wipe away bubbled areas for completed look.
Dollar store glass dish, silver spray painted coffee beans. I used the Krylon version of a metallic paint. It was supposed to look chromed but instead came out more like polished aluminum. I still liked he effect, just would have loved them more if they had that mirror finish. Maybe next time I'll try a different brand.
DIY Spray Paint Project. OP says: I used Rust-Oleum Satin Lagoon. After the spray paint was dry, I dry brushed white paint on the raised details. Get paint on your brush then dab basically all the paint off on a paper towel. Your brush must be very dry. See Tutorial.
To stay within budget, try crafting smaller items, like centerpieces. These spray-painted glass bottles look gorgeous as simple vases for individual blossoms. See more at Wedding Chicks. @VinoPlease #VinoPlease
TIPS: 1. Use spray paint. 2. Clean the glass REALLY well. Paint will not adhere very well to dirt or grease. I use isopropyl alcohol to clean any glass or porcelain surfaces that I'm trying to paint. 3. Lightly sand. 4. Use multiple, light coats. 5. rub chalk over the whole surface prior to the first use. (this will prevent any 'burned in' images)
