DIY Illuminated Mercury Glass Orbs

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Let the gold paint dry for 15 minutes, then repeat the entire process beginning with the misting three more times, so you end up with four layers of the vinegar and water solution, Looking Glass paint and gold paint. (Remember to apply the Looking Glass paint right after the vinegar and water solution, but allow the other layers to dry between coats.) The first few coats were very light and barely visible. But repeating the process will give you a semiopaque finish.
