  • Spray mirrored paint spray on the backside of glass. Do a light coat first.

  • While the back is still wet, spritz with vinegar/water mixture in a spray bottle.

  • Repeat these steps for a second coat.

  • Set aside to dry and then get started on any other objects.

  • For the vase & frame, use the tape on the outer edges on the opposite side of what you’re painting so it shines through at the end.

  • Repeat the two coats of mirror-effect and the water/vinegar mixture. Then let dry.

  • Once the glass is dry, take the backing of the frame & flip it so it's darker side up. This will help make the silver pop.

  • Take you paint pens, and stencil if needed, and create your lettering a design.
