Now on to my favorite DIY project. I was tinkering around a few weeks back and realize I can create a mirror effect by using any metallic paint. I try using latex's paint and it didn't work, so remember metallic spray paints.
Here is what you will need -
Spray bottle filled with plain water (no vinegar it didn't work well with the metallic paint)
A rag to dap the water and paint off.
|These are the items you will need.|
|Lightly mist the glassware with water.|
|Next lightly spray your metallic paint and let it sit for about 40 seconds. Finally, take your rag and simply dap the water/paint beads. Remember, don't rub, but dap in a rocking motion.|
|Here is the results of my plate. Love!|
|Look at the effect on this votive holder. See the other votive holder in the back?|
|These are all the pieces I sprayed painted with the gold metallic paint and I really love how they turned out.|
