    @idolina:  Mint will probably need several coats.  I did about half of mine on the back lawn, with cardboard underneath, and sprayed them from each angle, let it dry, and did it again.  Then the rest my maid of honor helped with.  We set up two saw horses, put a plank in between, covered it with a tarp, and sprayed away.  

    I know that I got a mint color I wanted to use, but it didn’t adhere to the glass well — it got all crackly and weird looking.  I would buy whichever colors you like from Michaels or AC Moore, and do some tests.

     

    I used a really nice slate blue and then gold, and we added some glitter to some of them.  In this picture, I used gold spray paint for the gold one, and acrylic blue for the shiny one.  If you squeeze a bunch of acrylic paint into a jar, screw on the lid, and move it around till it coats it, let it dry, and then bake it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, it sets the acrylic paint so water doesn’t ruin it.  But it was a pain in the ass!!
