Faux Mercury Glass

I'm obsessed.  I finally picked up a can of Krylon's Looking Glass Spray Paint at my local Ace Hardware.  All I can say is: I. Am. In. Love!
I found a tutorial on Pinterest detailing how to make your own faux mercury glass-looking Mason jars, apothecary jars, glass bowls, etc. This guy was my first attempt.
I have to say it was super easy to do.  You simply do 2-3 sprays on your jar with the paint.  I let that dry before I moved on to step 2: add 50/50 water and vinegar mixture to a spray bottle.  Spray wherever you desire and then blot the bubbles with a paper towel.  I only blotted for this one, but you can also wipe the vinegar/water mixture to make it more dramatic.  Then do a follow up coat of paint.  Let dry and pretty soon you'll be swooning over your latest masterpiece!
