Does this ornament look mirror shiny, like the cap, to you?
No. Of course not. Because someone got an idea to make a shiny mirrored stenciled ornament. But someone didn’t read the directions on the spray paint can.
After wondering what’s going on, why isn’t the ornament looking like a mirror, someone finally looked at the can.
“With Looking Glass Mirror-like paint you must paint the reverse of the side that will be showing.”
“Paint sprays dull but reverse side has mirror-like effect.”
It even says right under the picture on the front – and this someone always looks at pictures – that you:
“Spray on reverse side of glass for a reflective finish.”
Someone had even filled a cute little sprayer with water to make a mottled mirror finish, like old mercury glass.
It’s hard to find good help nowadays, huh!
So. Now that someone has read the directions, we know why there is no mercury glass happenin’ around here.
And now you also all know how NOT to use Krylon Looking Glass paint. And to keep this in mind when dreaming up ideas about what to do with it!
An alternative if you want a shiny look on an object that isn’t transparent, is to use silver foil or silver leaf. I might be doing that to these ornaments because I’m really stuck on the original idea.
