Faux Mercury Glass Steampunk Ornament #10 CADWCA

Good Monday Morning Friends.  Hope all of you had a great Weekend.  Here is #10 Installment of Craft a Day While Colt's Away!  Blessings,
I took a Glass Ornament and Sprayed the Inside with Black Spray Paint and Swirled Around.

I then Sponged on Silver Spray Paint and Antique Ink to make it look like Old Mercury Glass.
I cut out the Heart Wings on 36 Gauge Copper Foil. I glued Red Seed Beads on the Heart and Flat Back Crystals onto the Wings and around the Ornament.

I then attached an Old Metal Key Ring Chain and Ribbon. 
I love my Steampunk Christmas Ornament..

Please go take a look at these other links, great ideas waiting!



  1. This is so cool! Something you could leave up as an all year round thing.

  2. You are just TOO clever. I love this idea! Beautiful job!

  3. Love it! Can't wait to try that technique on a larger piece of glass! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Gosh I LOVE this!!! It's so beautiful and I agree with what someone else said, you could leave this out all year...
