Yay!! I made mercury glass candleholders! I saw a tutorial for these in a magazine, and just couldn't resist. Here's the good part: I got the candleholders at Dollar Tree, so they were only $1 each!! The mirror paint is Krylon brand - you can get it anywhere that sells paint. It's a little bit pricey - $6.84 or so per can, but it's totally worth it. I got the candles at Meijer - 2 for $3!! Can't beat that!
All you have to do is spritz the inside of the candleholder with water, and then spray it with paint. Set it upside down on newspaper and let it dry. Repeat 2-3 more times, or until you get the desired effect. You may want to set it upright one of the times while it's drying so the "watermarks" aren't all traveling upwards.
It's as easy as that! They would make great gifts as well, and they're definitely a cheap way to make something neat! I've seen them at different places for anywhere from $5-$20.
