IBP Mercury Glass Tutorial

I hope you all saw earlier this week about a wonderful Charity Fundraiser I'm involved in with Ivory Homes' help. All it takes is a minute of your time to REPIN an image or simply LIKE that same cupcake photo on Instagram. Your LIKE/Repin = $1 to Chloe's Sunshine Playground.  I believe every child should get to enjoy a day at the park whether they are in a wheelchair or not. This cause is near and dear to my heart. Please read more on my blog post from earlier this week. And look for my cupcake photo on Pinterest or Instagram under @allreddesign

Now let's talk about the latest Inspired by Pinterest Episode...
Ever wondered what "Mercury Glass" was or "how to create it". In today's episode I share tips and tricks for working with Mirror Spray paint to create your own antiqued looking glass pieces for your home. And be sure to check out how she used the mirror spray paint in a different way on a picture frame.

The trick for creating that antiqued or aged mirrored look to create your mercury glass is all in how you rub the vinegar water on the spray paint. Rub too much and it creates big patches...so be gentle and rub a little bit at a time.
I loved this technique and I really want to try it on a frame painted red. Simply spritz your frame with only "WATER" and spray over the beads of water. Then let it dry completely. I did two coats and really loved the texture it created.

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  

If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!
