Mercury candleholders add and reflect light. As a center piece or if spread around on any surface, in between picture frames, on a mantel, or the coffee table.
If you are willing to create your own Mercury candle holder here is a few steps to follow:
- glass votives and hurricanes
- 1 package silver leaf
- 1 package gold leaf
- leaf adhesive
- 1″ artist brush
- soft, mop head brush
Use a 1 inch artist brush, apply leaf adhesive to inside of votive or hurricane. Wait for it to dry until adhesive is clear and tacky. Use a thin coat and brush over adhesive after about ten minutes of drying time to prevent drips and pooling.
Tear gold leafing into small pieces and sprinkle inside votive in a random pattern. Use a finger tip to gently smooth down gold leaf.
