Thanks heaps Laura. especially for the link! Yes that makes really good sense and thanks for the creative tips about the mercury glass too! Do you think this spray paint would be good for touching up the mirror surface of a vintage dressing table mirror? You know how some mirrors get 'flakey'and crazed at the edges when they age and look black and dirty?

Sounds like a really good product useful for many applications!

@Ladyrob1 - You could give it a go. I don't think you could expect it to make the mirror look brand new but it might make it look 'cleaner'. You'd probably get a rustic look to it. Not having done something like that, I can only guess really. It would certainly brighten it up around the edges. Remember though, you would have to spray on the back side of the mirror. I've sprayed both sides on the vases just to see the effect. The one I did on the inside looked more mirror like on the outside of the vase and the vase that was sprayed on the outside was shiny silver but less mirror-like. I hope that helps. It is fun to play with. I have projects to create outdoor mirrors using old laundry windows.

Instead of having the entry from my garage to the house re-painted to cover the ugly grey paint which looked like cement, I watered down several sample colors and “splatter” painted. It turned out well and was loads of fun.

I also just purchased a small “cocktail” tree to grow in a pot. It has limes and lemons (which are expensive in my area).
