I’m going to make my own Mercury Glass.

I’ve been practicing on some pieces and using different techniques.

Just waiting for all the stars to align and everything to come out perfect, Winking smile

Maybe I’ll have something to share soon.

I’m working on a custom furniture order and that’s why I haven’t posted many craft or furniture projects lately.

I’ll be sharing the custom order too when it’s finished.

There are some great tutorials for Mercury Glass.

I’ve combined a few of the tips and made adjustments of my own.

Could be a mess or could work out?

Mercury Glass is very formal looking but I think with some nice white spring flowers….well we’ll see.

Do you have any Mercury Glass…..are you familiar with Mercury Glass…..have you made your own Mercury Glass?

    Kathy, I love mercury glass! I can’t wait to see how your DIY mercury glass turns out. I’m hoping to get to Clarksville soon and I’m going to stop by and see you. Have a great weekend! ~ Angie

      You better let me know when you’re coming to Clarksville, would love to get together with you. I don’t know how this mercury glass project is going to turn out, could be just a big ugly mess!

    Just found your site and really enjoy it. Love mercury glass have been for years but not alot around then. So much now I decided to give it a go. I found a pair of curtin tiebacks, so pretty just to look at. Anyway am going to make a lamp from an 1/2 gal ball jar. Hope it turns out ok.
