Step 1: Clean your surface. I flipped my glass table top upside down and wiped down the glass before applying the spray paint.

Step 2: Coat your glass with Rust-Oleum Mirror Effect.

Step 3: Let Dry (In the image below you can see where there are still wet spots. Once the splotches have cleared you can move onto the next step).

Step 4: Spritz your mixture of 1/2 water 1/2 rubbing alcohol all over your glass.

Step 5: Use paper towel to blot up what you have just sprayed. You can use your nails and a variation of pressure to create a different look.
