Silver Lining

Lately, I have been noticing a lot of mercury glass showing up in magazines and shows on interior design, and I wondered if I could recreate the look using silver leaf to line the inside of glass.




I found this apothecary jar that was missing a lid and knew it would make the perfect test subject for my experiment.


In a matter of minutes, I had something that looked a lot like a piece of aged mercury glass. And I was even able to find a small glass to use as a lid.



Why is it so hard for me to photograph shiny objects?



Anyway, yesterday's sunrise out my window.



Doesn't get any more silver lined than that for me.

I agree with the fact that mecury glass is hard to photograph as is anything shiny.
