Mercury Glass Candles

I took old flower vases and votive holders and turned them into faux mercury glass using Krylon Looking Glass paint.

I then filled the containers with soy wax candles. These were both new crafts for me. I am pretty pleased with the results.

For some reason I was afraid to make the candles but the only skills needed was boiling water to melt the wax and figuring out a way to center the wicks. There are devices you can buy to center wicks but I just cut a slit in blue tape to feed the wick through and it worked just great.

Tin Christmas Ornaments

I've taken a little break from painting and have been doing some crafting. I tin punched these ornaments and then added a little metalic paint.
