Over Christmas break, I played around a little with mirror spray paint and the glowing spray paint on canvas. It was pretty cool but I hate to use spray paint indoors due to the toxic fumes, so I never really finished.
Steps to Turning Old Pots into Glowing Wonders:
1. I finally found all the terra-cotta pots that I could find in my garage. There were all filthy so I washed them in my sink causing a huge mess.
4. The weather was not cooperating. It started raining so I had to bring the pots back in. I wanted to do a second layer but it has been raining on and off for days here.
5. I tested the "glow" quality of the pots. It was lower than I wanted. Since it was still raining, I used a "glow anything" kit that I bought last year and never used.
5. I broke out the Martha Stewart glow-in-the-dark glitter. I mixed a lot with a gel medium and coated everything again. They are drying now. I am planning to maybe coat these pots one more time with some sort of sealant. I am planning to put live flowers in these and give these to my sister for around her pool and garden area.
* I also coated a ball jar (pictured below) with the mirror paint, blue paint, and some glow paint. I stuck an electronic tea light in it and it looks really cool. I plan to make more of these which would be really cool because when you turn off the tea light they really glow!
I had crackled this frame over the winter. I used pink and gold and really didn't like it. I ended up using the mirror paint on it and it looks pretty good. I also am working on a door knob sign where I mirrored one side and used glow paint on the other. I want to put something like "I love the moon" on it for the kids.
