Change the Look of Your Lanterns
Stops Rust Metal Chair Makeover
Tools & Supplies:
Glass Vases or Jars
Old Sheets or Drop Cloth
Painter’s Tape & Paper
Spray bottle filled with 2/3 water & 1/3 vinegar
2X Ultra Cover Flat Spray
Find a spot outdoors and cover nearby items with drop cloths or old sheets to protect them from spray mist.
Clean the inside and outside of the glass, using glass cleaner and a lint free cloth.
Tape and cover with paper, the outside of the jar or vase to prevent overspray on to the object.
Hold the can of mirror paint 10-12” from the surface. Press the spray button and spray a light coat on the inside of the vase or jar.
While the paint is still wet, spritz the painted side with the water vinegar solution and blot the inside of the vase with a paper towel to achieve the distressed look.
Repeat steps 5-6 to achieve the desired look.
Let dry and enjoy your new work of art.
As an optional step to get a more distressed look, you can add a very light coat of Ultra Cover Flat black after step 5 and blot with a paper towel.
