Faux Mercury Glass

I love mercury glass. I've collected some (not real) mercury glass candleholders over the last five years or so, during the post-Christmas sales.

Recently I stumbled on a recipe for faux mercury glass and I've been experimenting (in small doses since I'm still fighting sciatica :(

This is one of the many insulators my dad got for me over the years. I love love love the blue insulators, but the clear ones don't do that much for me. I thought it was a perfect piece of glass to experiment on.

I'm fine-tuning the technique, since, just like with cooking, I can't simply follow a recipe--I always have to tweak it.

So, next post I'll talk about making faux mercury glass!

I have never heard of mercury glass, either. Looks pretty cool, though. :)
