Take your spray bottle with the adjustable nozzle and face it up and away from your piece of glass. Pull your trigger so that the water goes up into the air and lands on your piece of glass. Move the bottle around using various pressures as you squeeze the trigger and create droplets.
Step 2: Lacquer Time
Shake your Lacquer for 2-3 minutes and then work in horizontal passes over your droplets. Turn your piece and do another pass horizontally over the piece.
Step 3: Pat with a lint-free rag
Using a lint-free rag or non-textured paper towel pat your glass to create open areas from the droplets.
Step 4: Mixing your Mica Powder
Mix the Mica Powder color of your choice with Glazed Over. You want the consistency to be similar to paint. Using a sponge brush, paint the Mica Powder mixture over the open areas. Then fill in the whole piece with the Mica Powder mixture.
Step 5: Seal The Back
After your Mica Powder mixture dries, seal the back with another coat of Lacquer.
Lamps are one of those things that you keep for years because they offer the light you need to see or read at night. But what happens when they no longer match your decor? If you’re like most Americans, you likely store the old lamp in your attic or donate it and then go out and buy a new lamp that better matches your style. Amy Howard believes you can bring new life to old lamps, though. That’s why she’s sharing this simple DIY lamp lacquer project with you today.
