Create Your Own Mercury Glass!

My friend Darlene's daughter Heather is getting married this summer and Darlene's sister-in-law is a decorator and coming up with some great, creative ideas for the reception. Heather's colors are charcoal gray and a little pink and so Cindy is wanting to use mercury glass hurricane votive and candleholders on tables and said that you can do it yourself! I had no idea so I went on Pinterest and searched for mercury glass tutorials and there are lots. We were thinking you might have to use some sort of acid to eat away the silver to get the look but most tutorials use a product called Looking Glass Spray Paint by Krylon. Can't wait to try this DIY project!
