Mercury glass is an excellent effect you get with mirror paint. The sparkling shine you get on glass projects with this paint is outstanding. Mirror paint is found in many fun metallic colors now. And the best part about it is that you can get done in a flash by spraying the paint on your glass project. I especially love the scratched mercury glass technique, it gives it a vintage class. Which only requires rubbing the paint off the surface, with vinegar and water wet cloth. There are lots of things you can transform and DIY with mirror paint. I am sharing some of the most beautiful projects today.

    When I washed a mercury glass vase, the faux mercury came off. So be careful using mercury glass as a vase.
