i saw your diy post on mercury glass on the knot and then on vintage glam. i wondered if you ended up doing this looking glass on glass technique and whether you were happy with the results? i thought your pic looked just fine, great in fact!
Hi Mimi!!!Thanks for stopping by and commenting, it makes my day - like seriously, makes my day:)... So here's the scoop on the DIY mercury glass - I SERIOUSLY underestimated how difficult it would be to create “good” looking mercury glass. The paint often streaked, some of the votives looked like I sprayed the inside with plain old silver spray paint, and to top it off, only about half of the painted votives were “usable”. If I had started WAY earlier AND purchased extra votives I would have been in better shape, but I didn't, so I ended up pitching the project about a month before the wedding. It’s completely depressing, because I was halfway there! But in all honestly, I took on too many DIY projects, and had to cancel about a quarter of them at the last minute…so many, in fact, that I’ll be featuring my “abandoned DIY projects” in an upcoming series, with tips on how to avoid ending up like me! One last thing, one of Vintage Glam's readers revealed the source of the mercury glass photo that I posted (I couldn't find the original source, but thus is the life of a serial blogger). I wish I could, but I can't take credit for those awesome cylinder vases.http://www.jamaligarden.com/pID_19850.asp
hope you had a merry Christmas!
