I love the look of milk glass so I thought I'd try making the faux version myself. Milk glass isn't too hard to find, but I wanted to swirl paint around inside of a glass, so I did!
I found this little vase in my dining room hutch. Score! I know, by the way I describe finding things, it sounds like I belong on Hoarders, Buried Alive. I've said this before - but I assure you, I don't have to climb a mountain of magazines and QVC boxes, to sleep on the corner of my living room chair.
I poured it in the vase and swirled it around. SUPER fun! (No, I don't get out much).
I poured out the excess and let it drip on a large Ziploc bag, for about 1/2 hour.
After that, I wiped the rim with a damp cloth, and just did a little touch-up with a small paint brush.
I tied a little twine around the top, just to cover up the jar threads.
I added a tea light, and it has such a pretty glow.
(You'll notice the large carafe that I'm drip drying on the baggie - uh, that one didn't work out so well. Mainly because my nosey cat knocked it over... let's not talk about that.)
Have you made faux milk glass? I'm definitely going to make some more. Next I'd like to try using the white paint on the inside of a colored vase. I've seen that done on other websites and it looks really pretty.
