A 3-D skeleton mirror makes a spooky statement piece for your wall during Halloween season. Follow these steps to make your own!
- Working in a well-ventilated space, remove glass from the picture frame. To paint the frame, shake your can of Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Hammered Spray Paint vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Hold the can 10-16" from the frame and spray in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid runs.
- Clean and dry the glass thoroughly. Lightly and evenly spray the reverse side of glass with Rust-Oleum Mirror Effect Spray Paint, while carefully avoiding drips. Apply several very light coats, allowing the paint to dry for one minute each coat.
- Mist the Mirror Effect painted surface with a water/vinegar solution, then lightly blot surface with a paper towel to create a mercury glass effect.
- To paint the skeleton, hold your can of Rust-Oleum Universal Spray Paint 8-12” from surface and spray in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply 2 or more coats a few minutes apart.
- For added sparkle, apply Rust-Oleum Glitter Spray Paint over the painted surface. Hold the can 12-14” from surface and spray in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Shake the can often during use. For additional protection, top coat with Rust-Oleum Glitter Clear Sealer.
- Replace glass in the frame and attach skeleton to frame.
