Foiled Again!

Foiled Again!

IMG_1670.JPG

Last week someone shared some caning jars that were sprayed with mercury glass spray and it inspired us to dig out our our foils and see if we can get a similar look!

Since we were playing with foils… we had this lamp that has been waiting for the foil make over a long time… it’s time has come!

The first thing we did was paint the lamp with American Paint Company’s Cannonball Black. One coat was all we needed!

After the paint is dry we then applied the sizing, this is the sticky stuff that the foil attaches to. We also applied sizing to two canning jars… remember, that’s what got us started!

Now the fun begins… we cut sheets of foil and wrapped them around the lamp and canning jars…

When we were happy with the look, we then used American Paint Company’s Top Coat with Silver MICA added to it, to seal the foiled application. I love the transformation of the Lamp!!

The jars are ready for a little ribbon, a tea light and the perfect spot to light up your home!
