I love mercury glass, but it's so expensive!
So I gathered my pumpkins:
First I sprayed them with matte silver spray paint. I used this one:
I sprayed one coat lightly all over the pumpkin, and let it dry. Yes, I am spray painting on a trashbag as a dropcloth. It works, it's cheap, it's disposable. Shush.
I then sprayed them lightly with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint to add the depth of Mercury glass.
I used my mercury glass candlestick (THANK YOU MOM!) for reference:
End result? Not quite mercury glass, but I like it nonetheless.
Here is the finished product on my front porch.
I have a few more projects for here up my sleeve. For now, I've got mums waiting to be planted!
