Chrome spray paint verses Krylon Looking Glass Paint


Ok. As you may have read I am cheap and I tried to make mercury glass from spray chrome paint. Despite the fact that their lids are equally shiny, they are not equal products. Not there is anything wrong with Krylon’s Chrome paint, it’s great. It just won’t work nearly as well as Kyrlon’s Looking Glass paint for getting a realistic mercury glass finish. The product is actually for making a mirror out of normal glass. It is not exactly cheap, but it does last a long time, and more importantly, it gives a beautiful mirror like finish.

Look at the difference…

Pretty amazing difference. Actually, it’s even more noticeable in real life. So, in summary, don’t waste your money on any other silver paint except Kyrlon’s Looking Glass for making mercury glass.
