Painting on Glass with Amy Howard at Home: Design Three

I am excited to share with you today the third post of this Series that we featuring on the blog with Painting on Glass using the Amy Howard at Home products.

Today, we are sharing the Decorative Glass Technique: Design Three
Using the AhaH Furniture Lacquer and clear glass, 
we can create artistic decorative glass to add to any space! 
This is the Mist Bottle Technique.
The following are images and step by step instructions to complete this project!

Materials Needed:
• Piece of Glass
• Water
• Paper towels
• Mist bottle
• Amy Howard at Home Vendome Grey Lacquer
• Amy Howard at Home La Grange Lacquer

Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1: Clean both sides of glass well using simple green or glass cleaner to remove any unwanted spots that might affect the composition of the finish.  Make sure to wipe dry.
Step 2:  Fill a small mister bottle with water. Holding the spray bottle above the glass, quickly mist water into air, allowing water to fall onto glass.  Make sure to move your hand out of the way quickly to allow more water to hit the glass.  Repeat this step 2 - 3 times.  Misting the water into the air, rather than directly towards the glass will help to create an organic composition of water droplets, which will be the base layer for the decorative glass.
Step 3: After spraying the water up and above the glass, spray 1 coat of AHAH Vendome Grey Lacquer.  The lacquer will sit on top of the glass and the areas where water droplets were created.
Step 4: Immediately after lacquer application, lightly lay down a paper towel on top of glass.  The water droplets will have lacquer on top of them, which will be absorbed into the paper towel and removed from the glass.  This will create an organic composition of glass spots.
Step 5: Let the coat of lacquer dry completely before moving on to next step.
Step 6:  Apply 1 coat of the AHAH La Grange Lacquer.  Let the piece dry.  
Step 6: Enjoy your finished decorative glass which you created using the AHAH Furniture Lacquer.
Beautiful Completed piece!
